Are behavioral and cognitive-behavioral therapies sufficiently broad in their effects on trauma-related psychopathology and related factors? This volume considers many of the complexities in treating PTSD, and emphasizes evidence-based approaches to treatment. A useful resource for clinicians, trainees, as well as investigators doing research into the treatment of PTSD.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Hollie Sobel, PhD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This volume provides an empirically-based rationale for best practice parameters for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Purpose: The purpose of the book, as stated in the preface, is to provide the most recent advances in the treatment of PTSD. Areas addressed include improving treatment tolerability and outcome. The importance of targeting clinical features associated with PTSD is also highlighted. These are worthy and appropriate objectives. The book does appear to meet these goals.
Audience: According to the author and this reader, the book is intended for clinicians, researchers, and trainees. However, particular chapters seem better suited toward either researchers or practitioners, and the book seems more appropriate for students who are later in their training. The author's credentials are well described and impressive. His significant clinical and research experiences in the field do make him an authority.
Features: The book offers a critical analysis of the literature on PTSD and applies this information to assessment and treatment. The most efficacious therapy options are reviewed, as well as commonly encountered difficulties in the treatment process and ways to address these issues. A strength of this book is the modification of treatment as appropriate for various patient populations. There were no unique features to note throughout the book. Some chapters did include illustrations and graphs which helped to solidify the information presented in the text. A shortcoming might be little attention to particular skill acquisition.
Assessment: Overall, this book is of high quality, and appears to be useful to practitioners and researchers who work in the area of PTSD. It is somewhat unique in the pursuit of both academic and practical content. Other chapter or papers I have read on the topic are more geared toward one direction or the other.
