Clinician's Guide to PTSD: A Cognitive-Behavioral Approach (Paperback)Steven Taylor (author)
- Not available
Grounded in current clinical and neurobiological research, this book provides both an understanding of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a guide to empirically supported treatment. The author offers well-documented, practical recommendations for planning and implementing cognitive-behavioral therapy with people who have experienced different types of trauma-sexual assault, combat, serious accidents, and more-and shows how to use a case formulation approach to tailor interventions to the needs of each patient. Coverage includes different conceptual models of PTSD, approaches to integrating psychopharmacology into treatment, and strategies for addressing frequently encountered comorbid conditions. Illustrated with helpful case examples, the book features over a dozen reproducible handouts and forms.

"This book is a gem! It is comprehensive, covering both the science and art of cognitive-behavioral treatment for PTSD, yet it is also concise and user-friendly. It offers a compendium of new and established treatment methods in a case formulation approach that demonstrates how empirically supported treatment protocols can be adapted for individual patients. This volume includes everything a clinician, student, or researcher interested in PTSD needs to know. Taylor's thorough review of the literature even addresses neurobiology for the CBT therapist. A valuable resource for every clinician's bookshelf."--Barbara Olasov Rothbaum, PhD, Emory University School of Medicine
"Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), perhaps more than any other mental disorder, has catapulted to prominence in recent years. PTSD is a major public health problem for which treatment is often inaccessible to sufferers. In this book, Taylor outlines a cognitive-behavioral approach that is evidence based, yet flexible enough to be tailored to the needs of the individual client. The book is a valuable resource for clinical psychology graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and psychiatry residents, as well as any mental health professional desirous of increasing his or her knowledge base in this area of treatment."--Murray B. Stein, MD, MPH, University of California, San Diego
