"Counselling for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder synthesizes knowledge of both the biological and psychological effects and translates these into practical strategies for use in counselling. The book covers the full spectrum of trauma, which may initiate PTSD. It provides a clear and detailed account of how PTSD can be recognized." "Using case examples, Mike Scott and Stephen Stradling outline a range of techniques for counselling clients who have suffered major trauma whether recent or many years ago. In addition they give guidance on helping trauma victims with the additional burdens of panic disorder, substance abuse and physical disability." "Counselling for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Second Edition is for all who work therapeutically with traumatized clients."--BOOK JACKET.
