Editorial Reviews

The field of traumatic stress studies has seen remarkable growth since the advent of posttraumatic stress disorder as a diagnostic category in the 3rd edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, published by the American Psychiatric Association in 1980. The expansion of the field has moved the study and treatment into the mainstream of modern psychiatry, psychology, and neurosciences, as well as the social and behavioral sciences. The present standard reference brings together important research by leading investigators throughout the world and integrates it within a structured organizational framework of eight parts that contain 84 chapters. These contributions span the breadth and depth of the field at this time concerning theory, research methodology, and treatment considerations across a number of survivor and victim populations.
