Overview

Psychological Trauma reviews the theory of traumatic exposure as a major factor in psychological disorders like PTSD. It also addresses the differing outcomes of such exposure as well as exciting treatment options for patients. Some highlights from this volume of the 1998 Review of Psychiatry series include: • Complete coverage of the neurological damage from exposure to trauma.• A thoughtful discussion of the reasons some rape survivors suffer from chronic PTSD.• An established connection between PTSD and anxiety disorders and depression.• New uses of pharmacotherapy for patients suffering from PTSD.

The understanding of the connection between trauma and PTSD, is a continuing challenge for physicians. While many patients suffer from the disorder, it is still not commonly understood. Psychological Trauma provides psychiatrists and psychologists accessible and reliable information on the topic.
