Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a book by and for clinicians and scholars. Each therapeutic problem is elegantly reconceptualized as a cognitive and/or behavioral challenge which is then translated into a practical treatment strategy. Thoughtful transcripts of actual therapy sessions attest to the feasibility, accessibility, and effectiveness of such a conceptually driven treatment approach." —Matthew J. Friedman MD, PhD, Executive Director, National Center for PTSD, White River Junction, Vermont, Professor of Psychiatry & Pharmacology Dartmouth Medical School, Hanover, New Hampshire

"Representing the scientist-practitioner approach at its best, this book provides a sweeping, detailed, and complex view of trauma. It covers the theory underlying trauma conceptualizations and empirical findings relevant to assessment and treatment. The coverage is thorough and exceptionally well-documented. The inclusion of a section on trauma across the lifespan, including late life, is exciting and sets a gold standard for recognition of the trauma-related problems of older adults. Throughout the book, chapters expertly balance empirical evidence with a sensitive understanding of the human, emotional experience of trauma survivors." —Antonette M. Zeiss, PhD, Director of Training and Program Development, VA Palo Alto Health Care System, Palo Alto, CA

"This state-of-the-science book provides a practical guide to empirically supported interventions. Impressive in scope and scholarship, it highlights the emerging standard of care across the diverse forms of trauma. Therapists, researchers, and expert witnesses valuing interventions that have demonstrated their effectiveness in research studies will find this book invaluable." —Kenneth S. Pope, PhD, ABPP, author of Recovered Memories of Abuse
