Overview

This comprehensive volume reviews the theoretical rationale, scientific validity, and clinical applicability of a wide range of instruments and techniques used to assess psychological trauma and PTSD. Helping clinicians and researchers stay completely up-to-date and organized in their thinking about assessment, leading experts describe and evaluate numerous self-report measures, structured interviews, and standardized batteries, in addition to psychophysiological, epidemiological, and neuropsychological approaches. Chapters explore assessment issues specific to such stressors as childhood trauma and abuse, military-related PTSD, trauma related to medical illness, and traumatic bereavement. Also considered are methodological challenges and limitations raised by age, sex, ethnic, and other differences in victim and survivor populations.

This comprehensive and up-to-date book brings together leading authorities to cover the entire spectrum of instruments, techniques, standardized measures, and procedures used to diagnose and measure the psychological and physiological aftermath of trauma. Chapters review the research literature, discuss relevant conceptual issues, and provide practical guidelines for assessing PTSD and dissociative disorders in a wide range of clinical populations. Special topics covered include issues of gender, culture, and ethnicity in assessment; assessment of traumatized children and adult survivors of abuse; traumatic bereavement; and trauma-related disorders in medical settings.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kelly Dineen, MA (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book addresses the assessment of PTSD, psychological reactions to trauma, and the manifestations of trauma in special populations. The topics include the use of standardized assessment measures to assess PTSD and traumatic reactions and assessment in special populations (e.g., the medically ill, multiethnic populations, and families, children, and couples).
Purpose: The authors have developed a reference of standardized measures and assessment techniques used in trauma populations and with individuals diagnosed with PTSD. The growing interest in the area of PTSD specifically, and in the psychological sequelae of trauma more generally, has led to the development of numerous assessment instruments. The authors attempted to bring together the conceptual, empirical, and psychological advances in the field for the use of clinicians and researchers. The editors and authors meet this goal and address important issues in special populations.
Audience: This book was written primarily for practitioners and researchers already familiar with the area of PTSD and trauma. The editors and authors are all credible authorities who are directly involved in the either research or clinical work in this area.
Features: This book contains separate subject and author indexes. The chapters vary in their use of tables, with some providing excellent graphs and tables. In general the references across chapters appear comprehensive and current.
Assessment: This is a good reference volume for those working with trauma populations. It provides a critical review of the measures available in the literature and also addresses important clinical and research considerations for special populations. The rationale for organizing the chapters into the three sections is somewhat unclear and the reader may need to move between chapters for a complete discussion of an area of interest. This would be a good reference a graduate psychology library.

The first review of the full range of instruments, techniques, strandardized measures, and procedures used to assess psychological trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Nineteen articles cover such topics as how to use standarized protocols for assessing PTSD and dissociative disorders; techniques to assess gender, multicultural, and ethnic dimensions of trauma; psychophysiological and neurological procedures of PTSD assessment; and assessment issues relevant to specific populations, such as traumatized children and adult survivors of abuse.
