Now in its third revision, this classic has been completely updated with reference to treatment issues, and a new chapter on mourning has been added. "Stress Response Syndromes" is a useful book for mental health professionals.

The first edition of this now classic work provided the basis for adding post traumatic stress disorders to diagnoses of mental conditions. Each subsequent edition added new understanding, summaries of empirical new research, and new guides for clinicians. The thoroughly revised fifth edition adheres to changes that will be made in DSM-5 and gives the reasons for symptom formation and how treatment can not only resolve symptoms but encourage post-traumatic growth that leads to a more coherent sense of identity and renewed capacities for connecting compassionately with others. Stress Response Syndromes takes the reader from surface to depth with many lucid case examples and how-to advice for both trainees and experienced clinicians.
