The book's contributors have selected proven treatment protocols for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and present them as components of a unified conceptual model for cognitive-behavioral treatment. Respected clinicians have contributed chapters on working with a variety of survivor groups. For combat-related trauma, separate chapters describe group methods and individual behavioral methods appropriate for Vet Center and VA Medical Center settings. Behavioral principles for treating battered women in shelter and outpatient settings are delineated, as are treatment methods for both children and adults who have survived sexual assaults. In each chapter, specific assessment instruments that have proven useful are identified, and the applications of behavioral treatment methods are carefully described. Unique in its use of a common conceptual model of PTSD, the book's special features include a decision-making tree for guiding the multi-task process of diagnostic assessment in combat-related PTSD and a symptom checklist for monitoring changes in core PTSD symptoms over the course of therapy.

"Blending years of experience with traumatized patients, the authors have provided us with an outstanding manual to guide us in the evaluation and treatment of PTSD. This book is must reading for all clinicians who treat trauma survivors; it is splendidly written, incisive, and informative.'' --Terence M. Keane, Ph.D., National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder "It (the book) is appropriate reading for all mental health professionals, since knowledge of this prevalent but still underdiagnosed disorder is relevant to most clinical settings. However, it is particularly geared to the interests of scientist-practitioner clinical psychologists, who desire to integrate research and practice.

TREATING PTSD is well-written, lucid in style, and generally substantive in content. C-B therapeutic strategies are clearly delineated with careful rationale outlined for each technique. The chapters dealing with combat veterans in particular convey empirically informed clinical wisdom....In summary, TREATING PTSD: COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL STRATEGIES is an in-depth description of state-of-the-art behavioral and cognitive techniques utilized to reduce PTSD symptoms in certain trauma victims. Although framed within a C-B model, this book has broad applicability to all those working with PTSD sufferers, and these techniques can easily be translated into other theoretical frameworks." --Victor Molinari, Ph.D. and Tom Anderson, Ph.D., Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Psychology Service "Dutton looks at PTSD in battered women where the potential stressor remains. While treatment is possible within a safe environment, any treatment plan must accommodate to the often present threat of repeat assault. The chapter contains an excellent discussion of such therapeutic issues. Resnick and Newton discuss working with adult survivors of sexual assault without quoting Jehu's work on the topic. Again, the value of detailed assessment combined with exposure, anxiety management, and cognitive restructuring are well illustrated. Lipovsky makes very good use of clinical examples in illustrating a comprehensive cognitive-behavioral approach to treating PTSD in child survivors of sexual assault. Overall, there is a coherence to this text that is often missing from edited books. The authors share a good understanding of cognitive-behavioral methods and apply this well to alleviate the suffering of the survivors of various traumas." --Professor William Yale, Institute of Psychiatry, London, Journal of Psychosomatic Research "All chapters are well written and scholarly and contain useful information about treatment programmes." --"British Journal of Clinical Psychology" "This book will be of interest to someone who has a very specific interest in PTSD and also to those with a general interest in improving their clinical practice." --"British Journal of Clinical Psychology" ., ."this is a valuable work for both the experienced clinician and the graduate student." --"Journal of Cognitive Psychotherapy: An International Quarterly" "In this practice-oriented manual, Foy has assembled a small collection of treatment protocols, usually but not always with proven efficacy, in use at various centers. Most important, the book presents a perspective that highlights the similarities of treatment in a variety of different traumatized populations, such as survivors of combat, child and adult sexual assault, and domestic violence. At the same time, important differences reflecting the need to tailor specific treatment protocols to the situation, are not neglected....It is intended primarily for graduate students and mental health professionals whose clinical work involves these survivors....There is a particularly interesting chapter dealing with the assessment and treatment of PTSD battered women in shelters and out-patient settings...." --"Child & Family Behavior Therapy" "I...strongly recommend this book for professionals who must evaluate or treat individuals who have symptoms possible secondary to severe trauma....A worthwhile purchase...." --"American Journal of Psychotherapy" "Throughout this volume, sound clinical strategies are presented in a straightforward and concise fashion. Theprotocols presented represent state-of-the-art cognitive-behavioral approaches....Will become a standard both for practicing clinicians and graduate students." --"Journal of Traumatic Stress" "This book will be of interest to someone who has a very specific interest in PTSD and also to those with a general interest in improving their clinical practice." --"British Journal of Clinical Psychology" ., ."provides readers with an opportunity to develop a solid understanding of the behavioral, cognitive, and psychodynamic models that form the basic foundation for the field of traumatic stress....An excellent addition to the growing literature on the nature, assessment, and treatment of traumatic stress. I strongly recommend it to both novice and experienced clinicians and researchers." --"Contemporary Psychology" "An excellent introduction to the area and a very useful resource...There are so few useful books within this field on the market today that I suggest, if looking for a treatment manual approach, this be the one of choice." --"Modification Association" "Provides a manual for the cognitive-behavioral (C-B) assessment and treatment of PTSD among various client populations....Appropriate reading for all mental health professionals, since knowledge of this prevalent but still underdiagnosed disorder is relevant to most clinical settings. However, it is particularly geared to the interests of scientist-practitioner clinical psychologists, who desire to integrate research and practice...It is well-written, lucid in style, and generally substantive in content....An in-depth description of state-of-the-art behavioral and cognitive-techniques utilized to reduce PTSD symptoms incertain trauma victims. Although framed within a C-B model, this book has broad applicability to all those working with PTSD sufferers, and these techniques can easily be translated into other theoretical frameworks....It is a good introduction to this area from a C-B perspective." --"Clinical Gerontologist" "As a guide to cognitive-behavioral intervention with a wide variety of populations, however, this is a valuable work for both the experienced clinician and the graduate student." --"Book Reviews" "These presentations are enhanced by illustrative case material, and provide useful particulars as to what information is required....This book appears directed primarily to graduate students...." --"The Newsletter of The American Institute of Stress " Blending years of experience with traumatized patients, the authors have provided us with an outstanding manual to guide us in the evaluation and treatment of PTSD.
