Post-traumatic Stress Disorder Diagnosis, Management and Treatment – David Nut, Jonathan RT Davidson, Joseph Zohar
So long the Cinderella diagnosis among the anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is now coming out of its position of obscurity and is being seen as the major personal and societal disorder that it is. Post-traumatic Stress Disorder brings together a series of chapters covering all aspects of PTSD. This book spans diagnosis, through to the new molecular biological and imaging studies. Additionally, it discusses the current state-of-the-art in terms of psychological treatments, debriefing and drug therapy and concludes with a view of future needs and potential treatment and research direction. Post-traumatic Stress Disorder should be of interest to all the professionals working in the field of psychiatry, but especially to those with a specific interest in the treatment of anxiety disorders. It will give a platform of understanding into any clinical or even preclinical scientists who wish to begin to move into the field of stress related psychiatric disorder.
