Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is an excellent resource for mental health professionals who work with traumatized children and adolescents. It offers practical, evidence-based advice on the assessment and treatment of PTSD from a CBT perspective." - Alan Carr, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University College Dublin, Ireland.

"Post Traumatic Stress Disorder provides state-of-the art guidance on how to effectively treat this neglected disorder. Written by leading experts in the field and filled with clinical wisdom this book will be an invaluable resource for mental health professionals who work with traumatized children and adolescents and their parents." - Professor Anke Ehlers, King's College London, UK

"This excellent book contains a wealth of clinical detail and useful references. Written by clinicians for clinicians, it comes with a health warning: 'Don't attempt to use cognitive therapy with traumatised children unless you are a trained mental health professional in a CAMHS setting.' Nevertheless, the less specialised practitioner will find a great deal to assist them in recognising the symptoms of PTSD." - Heather Pritchard, Seen and Heard Journal, 2010
