Full Description:   

From prominent authorities in the field, the revised and expanded second edition of this acclaimed work is an essential resource for anyone providing treatment services or conducting research in the area of trauma and PTSD. The volume reviews the breadth of current knowledge about trauma assessment and provides clear, up-to-date recommendations for practice. Coverage encompasses the uses of standardized measures, clinical procedures, epidemiological methods, and projective techniques, as well as approaches to evaluating specific survivor populations. Existing chapters have been fully rewritten and seven entirely new chapters added, addressing recent developments in classification; emerging applications of neuroimaging and pharmacological probes; legal and forensic issues in assessment; assessment of comorbid PTSD and substance abuse; and effects of trauma on physical health.

He is cofounder and past president of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS), a Diplomate and Fellow of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress, and a Fellow of the American Institute of Stress. Dr. Wilson is the coeditor of Countertransference in the Treatment of PTSD and Treating Psychological Trauma and PTSD.

Terence M. Keane, PhD, is Professor and Vice Chairman of Research in Psychiatry at the Boston University School of Medicine.

His contributions to the field have been recognized by many honors, including the Robert Laufer Award for Outstanding Scientific Achievement from ISTSS, a Fulbright Scholarship, and an Outstanding Research Contribution Award and the Distinguished Service Award from the Division of Public Service Psychologists of the American Psychological Association.
