From Book News, Inc.:
Seven presentations record the Advances in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder conference held in New York City in September 1999. The goal is to capture the dialogue between the treatment literature and clinical practice, focusing particularly on issues that are often overlooked in the literature but are relevant to clinicians.
This comprehensive volume brings together leading authorities on psychological trauma to offer best practice guidelines for the treatment of PTSD. Developed under the auspices of the PTSD Treatment Guidelines Task Force of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, the book represents the collaborative work of experts across a range of theoretical orientations and professional backgrounds. After addressing general treatment considerations and methodological issues, chapters review and evaluate the salient literature on treatment approaches for children, adolescents, and adults. Approaches covered include acute interventions, cognitive-behavioral therapy, pharmacotherapy, EMDR, group therapy, psychodynamic therapy, inpatient treatment, psychosocial rehabilitation, hypnosis, marital and family treatment, and creative therapies. Standardized ratings are provided of each modality’s efficacy for reducing core symptoms, and therapeutic goals, methods, and treatment planning recommendations are summarized.
