Information involving the effects of traumatic stress has been chronicled for centuries. Reports dating from the Great Fire of London attest to the posttraumatic symptoms of children, adolescents and adults. Since posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) was recognized as an independent psychiatric classification in 1980, a plethora of books have dealt with PTSD, but none have provided a conceptual synthesis between research and practice - until now. This reference presents an empirical approach to science and practice, providing a comprehensive, integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to addressing the vital questions that are of interest to researchers and clinicians. Psychiatrists and psychologists in the field of traumatic stress studies review the history, epidemiology, etiology, assessment, and treatment of PTSD. Through their extensive theoretical and clinical experiences, they have prepared exceptionally thorough and authoritative analyses that provide significant insights about the material reviewed.

Disc. epidemiology, comorbidities, gender, pediatrics; incl. disasters, crime, combat; forensic issues; treatment.
