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

From the Publisher

"The essence of knowledge comes from accurate description and measurement, and there is no field whose current acceptance is more indebted to systematic, reliable research than the study of traumatic events. This second edition is an invaluable handbook and guide for anyone planning to investigate this domain. The breadth of topics covered also makes it a useful resource for students seeking to deepen their knowledge of trauma assessment. The addition of chapters about neuroimaging and psychobiology, and about the assessment of PTSD in legal settings, enhances the breadth and utility of this essential text."--Alexander C. McFarlane, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Adelaide, Australia

"In the rapidly developing field of psychological trauma and PTSD, the second edition of this authoritative book is a most important contribution. Thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded, the book is an invaluable resource for seasoned and novice researchers, clinicians, and graduate students. Authors clearly operationalize relevant constructs related to traumatization and PTSD, and detail the psychometrics and appropriate uses of major measurement instruments. Among the many features of the second edition, the new section on psychobiological assessment is particularly noteworthy."--Onno van der Hart, PhD, Department of Clinical Psychology, Utrecht University, The Netherlands; past president, International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies

"In this second edition of this classic work, the editors have assembled expert and comprehensive coverage of most of the issues inherent in assessing the wide-ranging effects of traumatic events. Relevant methodological issues are treated in a sophisticated yet clear and accessible manner. A research-based clinical approach to the assessment of traumatic stress reactions is complemented with critical surveys of useful assessment tools and experimental measures. Careful application of the wisdom contained in this text will ensure that research and clinical practice relating to PTSD remains evidence-based and continues to bring benefit to patients."--William Yule, PhD, Department of Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, UK

"Because trauma affects people in highly variable but pervasive ways, thorough and reliable assessment across multiple domains of functioning is indispensable to clinical decision making, treatment planning, and therapeutic progress monitoring. In this excellent second edition, Wilson and Keane have once again assembled a 'who's who' of leading researchers in assessment to cover the latest evidence-based assessment tools and strategies designed to evaluate trauma survivors across the lifespan and across all domains of functioning. The result is a cutting-edge, scholarly, and useful volume. It is a 'must read' for trauma professionals across the spectrum of subspecialties, as well as clinical trainees and graduate students."--Brett Litz, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine; National Center for PTSD, VA Boston Healthcare System

Kelly Dineen
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). 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. 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. 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. 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 intothe 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.
