The mental health effects of disasters and terror events can be severe, and are most effectively characterized as differing stress reactions with psychological consequences. Empirical studies show that addressing these consequences requires a staged approach to care. This volume, written by leading experts, provides professionals with practical, evidence-based guidance on diagnosis and treatment following disaster and terrorist events - and does so in a uniquely "reader-friendly" manner. It is both a compact "how-to" reference, for use by professional clinicians, as well as an ideal educational resource for students and professionals and for practice-oriented continuing education. The unique feature of the book is that it outlines a staged approach for post-disaster mental health care, based on empirically supported principles of treatments that work. Practical and reader-friendly, it is a compact and easy-to-follow guide covering all aspects that are relevant in real-life.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This installment in the Advances in Psychotherapy series focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of individuals following disaster and terrorist events. This book reflects the latest in psychological interventions for this specific population.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an evidence-based discussion on the broad range of psychological consequences that occur after a terrorist-initiated event. There is neither one definition nor best treatment, which the authors rightly point out. The book provides a strong foundation and background for clinicians and graduate students.
Audience: Clinicians and researchers in the area of trauma will find this book most beneficial. However, all psychologists would benefit from the insights and information contained in it. In addition, graduate students or fellows would be well served.
Features: The book appropriately gives an exhaustive review of the terms and definitions, comorbidities, and diagnostic approaches. A strong chapter on the various theories and methods, such as the Conservation of Resources Model, is provided. Readers will be impressed with the substantial discussion of various treatment modalities as well as the case vignettes which nicely emphasize key points.
Assessment: This is a strong and timely addition to the field.
