Product Overview

Each book in this popular series offers practical advice about an illness or condition in a clear and accessible style, written by leading authorities in the field.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to one or more traumatic events. It is a severe and ongoing emotional reaction to an extreme psychological trauma, such as someone's death, a threat to life, serious physical injury, or threat to physical and/or psychological integrity.

This book begins with a description of PTSD and other related problems often experienced by survivors, a short history of developments in the field and information on assessment, theory, research findings, and treatment procedures. Further chapters reflect new theoretical thinking and directions in the field of trauma e.g. growth following adversity. It discusses the types of support that should be provided at an early stage for individuals and families affected and presents this information in a practical and accessible way.

Though mainly intended for sufferers of post-traumatic stress, and their families and friends, this book will also be of interest to the general reader and an invaluable resource for professionals, such as general practitioners, clinical psychologists, psychiatric nurses and those in the voluntary sector.

'...[this book) is just excellent, with everything you ever wanted to know about trauma in easy-to-read language...highly recommended.' Psychological Wellbeing Services Manager, PSNI

' incredibly useful guide for clinicians, families, support agencies and individuals; this book is simply written in a way that makes it accessible to experts, students and individuals with no previous knowledge of the subject or psychology.' Chris Wade, Head of Learning and Volunteer Development, Victim Support

'This book is not only extremely digestable for the curious novice but also acts as a first-class aide memoire for post-trauma support professionals I will recommend that each of my Welfare Officers have their own copy to help remain focused on what their role is about.' Mark Woodland, Welfare Manager, Greater Manchester Police
