This textbook for clinicians, researchers, and academic professors is a classic volume on the theory and research findings on posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Key topics include why certain people cope successfully with traumatic experiences while others do not, the neurobiological processes underlying PTSD symptomatology, enduring questions surrounding traumatic memories and dissociation, and the core components of effective interventions. A highly influential work that laid the foundation for many of the field's continuing advances, this volume remains an immensely informative and thought-provoking clinical reference and text. May also serve as a text in graduate-level courses and residency programs.
