Counseling for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Third Edition, maps out how to therapeutically treat sufferers of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) using a cognitive behavioral approach to treatment. Fusing the biological and psychological effects of trauma, the authors present practical strategies for use in counseling. Covering the full spectrum of post-traumatic states, the book provides a clear and detailed account of how these states can be recognized and includes chapters on post-traumatic responses; criteria for diagnosis; assessment; and the cognitive behavioral model for treatment. Containing valuable case studies to illustrate theoretical material, this book outlines a range of techniques for counseling clients who have suffered major trauma, whether recently or in the past. This fully updated new edition addresses the specifics of counseling trauma victims and includes 18 detailed case examples together with transcripts of sessions. New material in this Third Edition includes pain management, working with children and adolescents, and refugees. A new PTSD screening inventory and a counseling competence scale are included as new appendices. This book will be invaluable to those in training or practice who are working with PTSD sufferers.
