This book is intended for clinicians at all levels of experience who seek a guide to the assessment of psychological trauma and its effects. After discussion of the theoretical foundation for understanding human responses to traumatic events, Dr. Carlson addresses both conceptual and practical aspects of selecting and administering measures to assess traumatic experiences and trauma responses. Additional chapters provide guidance in interpreting results of assessments and diagnosing trauma-related disorders and a brief introduction to major forms of treatment of trauma-related disorders. Profiles of 36 recommended measures of traumatic experiences and trauma responses are included and are designed to make it easy to find the information needed to obtain the measures. Measures profiled include self-report and interview measures of trauma, self-report measures of trauma responses, structured interviews for posttraumatic and dissociative disorders, and measures for children and adolescents. Flowcharts provide a quick reference for choosing measures at each stage of the assessment process.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"For all who have struggled to integrate the assessment of trauma into their clinical practice or their standard assessments, this book offers a helpful and readable guide to such an undertaking. Dr. Carlson offers a clearly articulated strategy for assessing a client's trauma history as well as his or her trauma-related symptoms. She also includes information on incorporating the results of the assessment into a treatment plan, and she profiles several assessment instruments that can be used with different populations or for specific purposes....It is a tribute to this book that it is able both to guide and challenge the reader, and I recommend it to those in the field." --"Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic"

"Eve Carlson, already celebrated as coauthor of the Dissociative Experiences Scale, has now written an eminently accessible, cogent clinical guide to the assessment of trauma and posttraumatic states. Especially recommended for those new to the study and treatment of trauma, this book has much to offer the seasoned trauma specialist as well." --John Briere, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology, University of Southern California School of Medicine

"This volume is a major contribution to the growing literature on the assessment of trauma and posttraumatic responses. Dr. Eve Carlson provides clinicians with an up-to-date and comprehensive resource on psychological trauma, its symptoms, and the various factors related to severity and outcome. Of particular value are the sensitivity with which Dr. Carlson approaches the topic and the clinical wisdom she imparts regarding the necessity and difficulty of assessing trauma responses. This book will benefit both clinicians and their clients." --Christine A. Courtois, PhD, Clinical Director, The CENTER: Posttraumatic Disorders Program, The Psychiatric Institute of Washington, Washington, DC, Author, Healing the Incest Wound: Adult Survivors in Therapy

"Effective psychological intervention with children and adults who have experienced trauma involves far more than identification of a trauma history. Eve Carlson makes the very important contribution of reminding clinicians that there are complex pathways between potentially traumatic experiences and negative outcomes in individuals. This guide offers specific and clinically useful ways to assess trauma impact in everyday practice." --Lucy Berliner, MSW, Harborview Center for Sexual Assault and Traumatic Stress
