Inhaltsangabe: Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders is written from the perspective of the practicing clinician and addresses adjustment disorders, acute stress disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder, which make up the DSM-5 category of trauma- and stressor-related disorders. The theoretical underpinnings of these disorders are thoroughly examined, but the focus of this volume is on practice. Perhaps the most difficult task facing the clinician working with stressed and potentially traumatized patients is differentiating between normal human behavior and pathological responses to traumatic situations. The editors and contributing authors offer detailed and compelling case vignettes that illustrate and illuminate the new diagnostic criteria and latest evidence-based interventions. This volume is concise, comprehensive, and case oriented, providing insight and guidance for psychiatrists, psychologists, and trainees, especially those working in military and other occupational health settings. Structured for easy evaluation of learning outcomes and replete with useful Web sites and suggested reading, Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders is an invaluable resource for clinicians seeking to understand the myriad factors that may influence a person's reaction to trauma and the array of therapeutic techniques available to support and heal the patient.
