In this book, Dr. Horowitz reveals the latest strategies for treating PTSD and expands the coverage to include several related diagnoses.

Readers will learn how to:  Diagnose, formulate, and treat stress response syndromes Do a step-by-step formulation, emphasizing strengths as well as problems Use a treatment approach that shifts as the patient changes The author guides the reader through a unique approach to treatment.

With this solid grounding in foundation principles for stress disorders, clinicians will be able to diagnose and treat patients with individual disorders more effectively.Treatment of Stress Response Syndromes is an invaluable resource for all psychotherapists today.
