Review quote

"In the classroom, I use this text as an expert reference to provide students with the critical knowledge of PTSD that they need for competent and responsible clinical practice. My students respond very positively to this book."--Gary Villereal, PhD, Department of Social Work, Western Kentucky University

"Foa et al. help clinicians figure out what kinds of interventions will be most helpful for a wide range of clients suffering from PTSD--an area where science-based guidance is urgently needed. They offer specific guidelines for designing and implementing treatments and managing crisis situations, all backed by clinical research. Frankly, Foa and her colleagues are the best in the business!"--Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director Emeritus, Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics, University of Washington; developer of DBT

"Without question, this is the definitive reference for anyone interested in the treatment of PTSD. The editors and contributors are leaders in the field whose clinical experience really shows. The need for good information about effective treatments for PTSD is even greater now than it was when the book was originally published, and the incorporation of significant new research and new topics makes the second edition even more valuable. Even those who tend to dislike treatment guidelines are likely to appreciate this book. It captures what we know but also acknowledges what we don't yet know, and captures the complexities of treating real patients. This is an indispensable resource."--Dean G. Kilpatrick, PhD, Distinguished University Professor of Clinical Psychology and Director, National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, Medical University of South Carolina

"This marvelous update to the standard-setting prior edition provides all the information that practitioners and researchers need on the diagnosis and treatment of PTSD in children, adolescents, and adults. The volume systematically covers the field for readers seeking an up-to-date summary of the evidence. At the same time, it is a highly accessible reference for those who have specific questions. It is easy to read from beginning to end. Highly recommended."--John S. March, MD, MPH, Chief of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Director, Program in Child Affective and Anxiety Disorders, Duke University


"From experts in the field, this excellent book is loaded with the most up-to-date treatment guidelines for PTSD. The book provides valuable information on diagnosis and assessment. Treatment-focused chapters are thorough and lucid, and include approaches to working with children as well as adults. The full range of biopsychosocial approaches are reviewed, making this an essential reference for residents, clinicians, and researchers."--Nang Du, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco


"When I received the review copy of this book, I immediately pressed it into service....The authors and editors of this book are to be commended for the neat package of materials they have assembled that provides information that both researchers and clinicians need in an unbiased yet easy-to-access style. I believe this book will be important for anyone interested in the current state of the art in trauma treatment or who wants to know what is happening in trauma research. I highly recommend this book for both scientists and practitioners."--PsycCRITIQUES, 10/29/2010
