Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A splendid book.... The book opens with a vivid, gripping account of rape trauma that underscores the terror of sexual violence. Turning next to the scientific literature, the authors review studies on epidemiology, psychopathology, and treatment for rape-related posttraumatic stress disorder, and interpret these data within the framework of Foa's emotional processing theory. In addition to being a first-rate work of scholarship, this book provides detailed, explicit guidance on how to conduct state-of-the-art treatment for survivors of sexual assault. Accordingly, this excellent book is essential reading for mental health professionals who work with women who have been raped." --Richard J. McNally, PhD, Department of Psychology, Harvard University

"All of the treatment description chapters are particularly wonderful. They provide great detail on length of sessions and all of the specific procedures. In addition, invaluable case examples are provided and specific problems that may come up are addressed. This book will be an incredible resource for clinicians and academicians. The authors are to be commended on this excellent body of work and their ability to describe it with such thoroughness and detail." --Heidi Resnick, PhD, Associate Professor, National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, Medical University of South Carolina

"Written by internationally acknowledged experts in research and practice, this excellent book provides clear, step-by-step guidance in how to plan and implement an empirically validated treatment for rape trauma. It is essential reading for trauma researchers and clinicians." --David M. Clark, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry, University of Oxford, Warneford Hospital

"This book is at once both scholarly and practical. It blends state-of-the-art scientific information about the nature of traumatic reactions with practical clinical guidelines for conducting cognitive-behavioral therapy with rape victims. The step-by-step instructions for conducting individual exposure therapy are especially well-formulated. This is certainly the book I will use in my graduate school teaching and for guiding my own treatment efforts with rape victims. The book is outstanding!" --David W. Foy, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Graduate School, Education and Psychology, Pepperdine University

Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic

"This volume exemplifies manualized treatment....Given the authors' empirical grounding, clear thinking, lucid writing, and extensive clinical experience, this volume should be of great value to any therapist who is treating PTSD regardless of theoretical bent. There is no more straightforward, empirically based approach to treating psychological trauma."--Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
Psychotherapy in Private Practice

"Although Foa and Rothbaum are known above all for their achievements as researchers, their book also displays the compassion and refined sensitivity that are hallmarks of accomplished clinicians....[This book] contains coverage of a spectrum of cognitive-behavioral interventions for PTSD at a level of detail that is not readily available elsewhere."--Psychotherapy in Private Practice
Psychotherapy Research

"This book is an excellent training tool for both experienced and novice therapists....An outstanding resource."--Psychotherapy Research
Psychiatric Services

"[The authors] succeed in helping all of us who work with victims of trauma develop a treatment approach that we can use not only to understand our patients' suffering but also to teach them that recovery can and does occur."--Psychiatric Services

    Incredible resource

    I read the reviews of this book before purchasing because I needed solid treatment examples for a project I'm doing in graduate school for my MSW. This is an outstanding resource for therapists and social workers.
