The Clinical Manual for Management of PTSD provides clinicians with the latest information on PTSD. In 16 well-organized, accessible chapters, world leaders in research on epidemiology, neurobiology, psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and other somatic therapies outline the most up-to-date evidence-based approaches to assessment and management of patients with PTSD. This practical guide covers modalities for therapeutics and management ranging from pharmacotherapy to cognitive processing therapy to virtual reality exposure therapy. It can be used as a complete text for residents and students to gain a solid understanding of PTSD and current treatment modalities, or as a desktop reference for experienced clinicians in daily practice to consult for specific information. The Clinical Manual for Management of PTSD provides clinicians and students with a consolidated and thoughtful reference that can be used to complement and enhance their everyday practice. This book bridges the gap between the research community and the clinician by providing a comprehensive resource of clinically relevant information on PTSD.Am J Psychiatry 159:1603a1605, 2002 Leys R: Trauma: A Genealogy.
