Treating Complex Traumatic Stress Disorders in Adults, Second Edition (2nd ed.)

Scientific Foundations and Therapeutic Models

Julian D. Ford,

Treating Complex Traumatic Stress Disorders in Adults, Second Edition: Scientific Foundations and Therapeutic Models
 
 
This authoritative reference on complex traumatic stress disorders (CTSDs) and their assessment and treatment has now been significantly revised with more than 75% new material reflecting a decade of advances in the field. Leading experts delve into ways to understand, engage, assess, and treat adults with complex trauma histories, whose symptoms often include but may go well beyond those of posttraumatic stress disorder. The volume presents cutting-edge theory and research on CTSDs, considers diagnostic controversies, and identifies core elements of effective, culturally responsive treatment. Established and emerging therapies specifically tailored to this population are described and illustrated with vivid case examples. Other highlights are chapters on transtheoretical treatment, the crucial role of professionalism and training, and recognizing and managing vicarious traumatization.
