Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a psychiatric condition that can occur in anyone who has experienced a life-threatening or violent event. The trauma can be due to war, terrorism, torture, natural disasters, accidents, violence, or rape. In Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Basic Science and Clinical Practice, widely regarded experts in the field outline the neurobiology of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and provide a range of state-of-the-art treatment strategies for clinicians. Originally associated exclusively with military service, PTSD is now recognized as a disorder that can result from any traumatic situation and can afflict children as well as adults. In this ground-breaking title, the authors review the current state of knowledge of PTSD, covering not only pharmacological and psychological treatment strategies but also epidemiological findings, the neurobiology and neurophysiology of PTSD, and brain imaging issues. In all, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Basic Science and Clinical Practice provides today's most relevant and up-to-date information regarding the treatment and understanding of those affected by PTSD and is an invaluable resource for all clinicians and neuroscientists concerned with the condition.
