Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Lori R. Solaro, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a current, theoretical, and clinical review of post-traumatic stress disorders in children and adolescents.
Purpose: The editor and contributors intend to examine the theoretical and clinical research evidence linking stressful life events to psychiatric illness in children and adolescents.
Audience: This book is useful for all mental health professionals, and is especially useful for child psychiatrists and child psychologists.
Features: The contributors comprise a multidisciplinary group of clinicians and researchers recognized in the field of child and adolescent healthcare.
Assessment: This comprehensive book considers post-traumatic stress disorders from a broad perspective, and includes discussions of a diversity of traumatic events such as sexual abuse and family violence, adolescent pregnancy, peer rejection, and warfare and natural disaster. These diverse traumatizing situations are etiologically related to stress disorders, which include post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, psychosis, and substance abuse. The concept of stress disorders encompassing a heterogeneous collection of DSM-IV diagnoses is a useful approach to the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents exposed to traumatic events.
