Overview

Developed under the auspices of the PTSD Treatment Guidelines Task Force of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, this comprehensive volume offers best practice guidelines for the treatment of PTSD. The book represents the collaborative work of experts across a range of theoretical orientations and professional backgrounds. After addressing general treatment considerations and methodological issues, chapters review and evaluate the salient literature on treatment approaches for children, adolescents, and adults. Approaches covered include acute interventions, cognitive-behavioral therapy, pharmacotherapy, EMDR, group therapy, psychodynamic therapy, inpatient treatment, psychosocial rehabilitation, hypnotherapy, marital and family treatment, and creative therapies. Standardized ratings are provided of each modality's efficacy for reducing core symptoms, and therapeutic goals, methods, and treatment planning recommendations are summarized. Synthesizing a vast body of knowledge into a cohesive, practical framework, this volume will be the definitive resource for all clinicians and researchers working in the area of PTSD.

The book contains no figures.

I believe this book will be important for anyone interested in the current state of the art in trauma treatment or who wants to know what is happening in trauma research. I highly recommend this book for both scientists and practitioners."--PsycCRITIQUES

From the Publisher

"In the classroom, I use this text as an expert reference to provide students with the critical knowledge of PTSD that they need for competent and responsible clinical practice. My students respond very positively to this book."--Gary Villereal, PhD, Department of Social Work, Western Kentucky University
 
"Foa et al. help clinicians figure out what kinds of interventions will be most helpful for a wide range of clients suffering from PTSD--an area where science-based guidance is urgently needed. They offer specific guidelines for designing and implementing treatments and managing crisis situations, all backed by clinical research. Frankly, Foa and her colleagues are the best in the business!"--Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director, Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics, University of Washington
 
"Without question, this is the definitive reference for anyone interested in the treatment of PTSD. The editors and contributors are leaders in the field whose clinical experience really shows. The need for good information about effective treatments for PTSD is even greater now than it was when the book was originally published, and the incorporation of significant new research and new topics makes the second edition even more valuable. Even those who tend to dislike treatment guidelines are likely to appreciate this book. It captures what we know but also acknowledges what we don’t yet know, and captures the complexities of treating real patients. This is an indispensable resource."--Dean G. Kilpatrick, PhD, Distinguished University Professor of Clinical Psychology and Director, National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, Medical University of South Carolina
 
"This marvelous update to the standard-setting prior edition provides all the information that practitioners and researchers need on the diagnosis and treatment of PTSD in children, adolescents, and adults. The volume systematically covers the field for readers seeking an up-to-date summary of the evidence. At the same time, it is a highly accessible reference for those who have specific questions. It is easy to read from beginning to end. Highly recommended."--John S. March, MD, MPH, Chief of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Director, Program in Child Affective and Anxiety Disorders, Duke University

"From experts in the field, this excellent book is loaded with the most up-to-date treatment guidelines for PTSD. The book provides valuable information on diagnosis and assessment. Treatment-focused chapters are thorough and lucid, and include approaches to working with children as well as adults. The full range of biopsychosocial approaches are reviewed, making this an essential reference for residents, clinicians, and researchers."--Nang Du, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco

    there are no victims stories

    There are many names of phd's and MD's but no paitents.Who is this book targeted at? It sounds like a good source for a research but not a good book for the individual with PTSD.
