The Encyclopedia of Psychological Trauma is the only authoritative reference on the scientific evidence,
clinical practice guidelines, and social issues addressed within the field of trauma and posttraumatic
stress disorder. Edited by the leading experts in the field, you will turn to this definitive reference work
again and again for complete coverage of psychological trauma, PTSD, evidence-based and standard
treatments, as well as controversial topics including EMDR, virtual reality therapy, and much more.
"This work will serve as a clear, useful reference for those in the field of traumatic stress studies.
Comprehensive subject/author index. Summing Up: Highly recommended."
"In simple, nontechnical language, this resource outlines the nature and description of psychological
trauma, its impact and sociopolitical effects, its prevention and treatment, current research, professional
organizations, and government policies. Each entry ranges from three to five pages and contains a useful
list of references to journal articles, books, or web sites. The volume allows systematic access to topics
through its alphabetic arrangement and an excellent subject and author index. This single-volume work,
therefore, fills an important research gap and will prove valuable to students, clinicians, educators, policy
makers, and other interested persons. Highly recommended."
