Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Diane S. Goldstein, PhD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: The editors of this book delineate the current trends in assessment, diagnosis, treatment, research, and theoretical modeling in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Purpose: The purpose is to provide practitioners and researchers with a comprehensive textbook in which the current trends in PTSD are addressed by reviewing its complex history and epidemiology, describing the emerging research literature on the biological basis of PTSD, addressing many controversies associated with PTSD, and providing future directions for the investigation and conceptualization of PTSD. Given our growing understanding of the prevalence of this disorder, the book is timely and the editors largely meet their objective.
Audience: This book is intended for psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals who diagnose, treat, or conduct research with individuals suffering from PTSD. The multiple contributors to the individual chapters of this book are credible and authoritative in the field of anxiety disorders.
Features: The editors outline an excellent history of PTSD, including the important comparison of DSM-IV to ICD-l0 and their related diagnostic dilemmas. They comprehensively reviews epidemiology and the biological basis of PTSD, including recent findings from investigations of brain imaging, neuroendocrinology, neurophysiology, and pharmacology. They addresses many controversies in PTSD, including the utility of acute stress disorder, "secondary traumatization" of treating therapists, debriefing, the notion of complex PTSD, and the paradox of cortisol levels in PTSD. The well-presented chapter on ethnocultural issues reflects the editors' up-to-date approach. They provide excellent summary tables of studies and provide actual assessment instruments in the appendix. The controversy of delayed onset PTSD in the case of childhood abuse is not addressed in this book; nor is the diagnosis of PTSD in the legal arena presented.
Assessment: This book is useful for practitioners and researchers in bringing together the many complex issues associated with PTSD; each chapter amounts to a current literature review and discussion of controversies and future directions. Overall, this book is a valuable contribution to the literature on PTSD.

Psychiatrists and epidemiologists, most from the US, Israel, and South Africa, help psychiatrists, psychologists, and other health-care professionals realize that there is a significant degree of evidence on which they can base their understanding and treatment of the common and disabling disorder. They include discussions of its personal and social cost, its role in different societies and age groups, and the effects on the therapist of hearing about trauma.
