What People are Saying About This

Professor Keith Rix

Expert witnesses provide opinions that assist the delivery of justice. They are often required to have regard to relevant research. In the field of trauma- and stress-related disorders, there have been considerable developments in recent years. This textbook will therefore be of enormous assistance to psychiatric expert witnesses. It thoroughly and comprehensively reviews the relevant research and assists as to the reliability and implications of many of the studies reported. It helpfully sets the disorders in the context of ICD-10 and DSM-5 and anticipates their treatment in ICD-11, which is particularly important in jurisdictions which expect psychiatric expert witnesses to refer to these internationally recognized systems of classification.

Jerome C. Wakefield

Casey and Strain's Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders is the book for anyone, from first-year clinical students to seasoned clinical researchers, who wants to get beyond the DSM's symptom lists and understand the thinking behind the new DSM chapter devoted to the trauma- and stress-related disorders such as PTSD, adjustment disorder, and the new category of persistent complex bereavement-related disorder.

Robert Michels

Stress and trauma are part of every life. Most individuals cope, and many even grow as a result. However some do not, and their pathologic responses have received increasing attention in modern psychiatry. Casey and Strain have assembled the world's experts to provide a clear, comprehensive and clinically relevant survey of the field, ranging from adjustment and stress disorders to complicated grief. They discuss epidemiology, diagnosis, phenomenology and treatment, and introduce us to the neurobioligic and psychosocial substrates of the disorders. This is a book for every mental health professional who sees patients coping with stress, and that means every mental health professional.
