"This is an extraordinary volume filled with nuanced and thoughtful discussions of recent advances in every facet of research on PTSD. The contributors are a veritable who's who of leaders in basic and translational PTSD research. 'Must' reading for anyone interested in understanding the nosology, epidemiology, causes, consequences, or treatment of this important disorder."--Ronald C. Kessler, PhD, McNeil Family Professor of Health Care Policy, Harvard Medical School

"Handbook of PTSD, Second Edition, captures the state of the science of the field, cementing its place as the premier go-to reference. The volume starts from the foundations and includes comprehensive coverage of both science and practice. It is marked by its nuanced approach; contributors readily acknowledge controversies in the field and provide the reader with the evidence needed to inform reasoned discussion about open areas of debate. The book will be a tremendous asset to classes concerned with psychiatry, psychology, or the epidemiology of trauma and its consequences."--Sandro Galea, MD, DrPH, Gelman Professor and Chair, Department of Epidemiology, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University

"Unequaled in scope, this impressive work offers a thorough account of what is known about PTSD. The second edition reflects enormous recent strides in such areas as neurocognitive alterations associated with PTSD, the dissociative subtype, genetics, childhood traumatic stress, and various forms of treatment. This book should be required reading for all trauma-oriented researchers, clinicians, and graduate students."--Onno van der Hart, PhD, Emeritus Professor of Psychopathology of Chronic Traumatization, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

"I teach a senior capstone course in Trauma Psychology. The Handbook of PTSD offers a comprehensive overview of the scientific and clinical knowledge underlying trauma psychology that is quite readable, yet thoroughly referenced. When we discussed cutting back on various readings to provide more time for a thesis, my students asked to retain most of the assigned Handbook readings because they found them so useful and interesting! The contributors are top experts who provide fair treatment of controversial theories and clinical topics fairly. This is the only book I have found that provides the breadth and depth needed for the primary text for an upper-level undergraduate course in Trauma Psychology, and it would also be excellent for a graduate course."--Robert Whitney, PhD, Adjunct Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology, Temple University

"Once again, the Handbook meets its lofty goal of advancing our understanding of PTSD. This volume fully updates the field and is a cornucopia of synthesis, integration, and review of the cradle-to-grave issues involving PTSD. Comprehensive and authoritative, it should be kept within arms' reach of clinicians, researchers, and educators, and is an excellent text for a graduate course on traumatic stress."--Stevan E. Hobfoll, PhD, Chair, Department of Behavioral Sciences, Rush University Medical Center

"The publication of this timely second edition responds to ongoing, extremely dynamic developments in the field. The book reflects the cutting edge of our scientific understanding of the neurobiology and psychology of trauma and its repercussions for humankind globally. Advances in telemental health technology are nicely covered, as are Internet-based interventions. I'll certainly keep recommending the Handbook as an essential reference for clinicians and researchers as well as a classroom text."--Ulrich Schnyder, MD, Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland
