Stress Response Syndromes has already achieved the status of the classic work in the field. In this updated edition, Horowitz integrates the newest data available to make an outstanding book even better. Both students and experienced clinicians will find much to learn from this new edition. (Glen O. Gabbard, M.D.)
This is an important book on an important subject. It is at one level a primer on psychotherapeutic help for victims of trauma—by rape, sudden bereavement, or injury. It describes with great sensitivity and detail the feelings of fear, rage, shame, guilt, and numbness associated with trauma, and focuses in particular on 'intrusive images' of violence that can haunt victims for years afterwards. It shows how, if these feelings are to be overcome, the meaning of the trauma in the patient's biography has to be understood. (Jeremy Holmes, M.D.)
Stress Response Syndromes has been considered an authoritative work on the subject for three decades. This important update to a classic work should be purchased by all research libraries serving trauma researchers and scholars. (Choice Magazine)
Stress Response Syndromes is a classic, a book that defined the modern era of understanding and treating posttraumatic stress disorder. Dr. Horowitz applies broad theoretical foundations and crystalline case description to enhance understanding of the nature and treatment of stress response syndromes. His conception of fluctuating under- and over-modulation of response to stress intrusion and avoidance is a critical contribution to our understanding of PTSD. Dr. Horowitz creatively merges expertise in psychotherapy of various Axis II personality disorders with grief work, transference, and developmental problems. The reader is treated to an erudite approach to complex treatment involving the interaction of personality and traumatic experience. Dr. Horowitz and colleagues combine empathy with lucidity, compassion with sophistication in psychotherapy. This book is the primer for the psychodynamic treatment of trauma. (David Spiegel, M.D.)
