This book offers an accessibly written introduction to PTSD, making it an indispensable resource for anyone whose life has been affected-directly or indirectly-by this condition.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric condition that can emerge after an individual experiences a traumatic event such as war, sexual assault, or natural disaster. Those affected may relive the traumatic event through flashbacks or nightmares, become hypervigilant or anxious, or experience alterations in mood and cognition. Beyond this definition, however, what do individuals and families affected by PTSD need to know?

What You Need to Know about PTSD is a part of Greenwood's Inside Diseases and Disorders series. This series profiles a variety of physical and psychological conditions, distilling and consolidating vast collections of scientific knowledge into concise, readable volumes. A list of "Top 10" essential questions begins each book, providing quick-access answers to readers' most pressing concerns. The text follows a standardized, easily navigable structure, with each chapter exploring a particular facet of the topic. In addition to covering basics such as causes, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options, books in this series delve into issues that are less commonly addressed but still critical to understand, such as effects on loved ones and caregivers. Case illustrations highlight key themes discussed in the book and are accompanied by insightful analyses and recommendations.


* Approaches the subject in a holistic manner, covering often-overlooked areas such as societal perceptions and impacts on family and friends

* Provides quick answers to the questions that readers are most likely to have in an Essential Questions section that also serves as a springboard for understanding the content of the book in greater depth
