"It (the book) is appropriate reading for all mental health professionals, since knowledge of this prevalent but still underdiagnosed disorder is relevant to most clinical settings. However, it is particularly geared to the interests of scientist-practitioner clinical psychologists, who desire to integrate research and practice.
TREATING PTSD is well-written, lucid in style, and generally substantive in content. C-B therapeutic strategies are clearly delineated with careful rationale outlined for each technique. The chapters dealing with combat veterans in particular convey empirically informed clinical wisdom....In summary, TREATING PTSD: COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL STRATEGIES is an in-depth description of state-of-the-art behavioral and cognitive techniques utilized to reduce PTSD symptoms in certain trauma victims. Although framed within a C-B model, this book has broad applicability to all those working with PTSD sufferers, and these techniques can easily be translated into other theoretical frameworks." --Victor Molinari, Ph.D. and Tom Anderson, Ph.D., Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Psychology Service
"Dutton looks at PTSD in battered women where the potential stressor remains. While treatment is possible within a safe environment, any treatment plan must accommodate to the often present threat of repeat assault. The chapter contains an excellent discussion of such therapeutic issues. Resnick and Newton discuss working with adult survivors of sexual assault without quoting Jehu's work on the topic. Again, the value of detailed assessment combined with exposure, anxiety management, and cognitive restructuring are well illustrated. Lipovsky makes very good use of clinical examples in illustrating a comprehensive cognitive-behavioral approach to treating PTSD in child survivors of sexual assault. Overall, there is a coherence to this text that is often missing from edited books. The authors share a good understanding of cognitive-behavioral methods and apply this well to alleviate the suffering of the survivors of various traumas." --Professor William Yale, Institute of Psychiatry, London, Journal of Psychosomatic Research
