Overview

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a comprehensive and thoughtful examination of the nature, causes, and treatment of PTSD. Drawing on the vast experience of its team of authors, the book details the insidious nature and history of PTSD, from the internal and external factors that cause this form of suffering to the ways it manifests itself psychologically and socially. The most cutting-edge research on treatment, intervention, and prevention is thoroughly discussed, as are the spiritual and psychological strengths that can emerge when one progresses beyond the label of "disorder." The book begins with a historical review of the topic. Subsequent chapters offer in-depth exploration of the significant foundations, function, impacts, and treatments associated with PTSD. Each chapter addresses practical issues, incorporating case studies that bring the information to life and ensure an appreciation of the myriad social, psychological, and biological experiences surrounding PTSD. This book answers complex questions like "How does PTSD manifest itself?" and more critically: "How can its effects be mitigated or overcome?" Finally, it discusses how PTSD survivors can move beyond post-traumatic stress to post-traumatic strengths.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"What sets this book apart are the numerous case examples that facilitate personal connection with concepts. . . . A first-rate overview of current treatments . . . this book is wonderfully distinctive in that it discusses the positive side of PTSD, i.e., 'post-traumatic strengths.' Highly recommended."

-

Choice

"What could be more timely and more potentially useful for the consumer of books on mental health topics than a brief and well-written volume that describes the essential characteristics, causes, and crucial psychological processes of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)? . . . I would recommend this book to anyone who wants an easy-to-read, comprehensive source that summarizes the current clinical and empirical literature on PTSD."
