Description

A handy, easy-to-read reference for the diag-

nosis and treatment of posttraumatic and

acute stress disorders,  this important 6th

 edition has been revised and updated exten-

sively, offering a wealth of new information

in a concise format. The new DSM-5 diagnos-

tic criteria for PTSD and ASD are discussed in

depth. Updated tables listing instruments

for assessing diagnosis and symptom severity

are presented.   Chapters 3-5 have been revised

to keep pace with the ever-expanding literature

on treatment of PTSD with specific attention to

evidence-based cognitive-behavioral therapy,

 CBT, and other individual psychosocial treatments

(e.g. eye movement desensitization and reprocessing,

EMDR) as well as  the growing literature on couples,

family, group and school-based treatments.

Chapter  5 reviews the pathophysiology of PTSD and

evidence-based pharmacotherapy for the disorder. 

Chapter 6 then addresses both normal acute stress

 reactions and clinically significant ASD,  as well as

 effective interventions for each. In short this

comprehensive, sophisticated, practical, guide is

designed for all practitioners who wish to provide

the best treatment for PTSD and ASD.
