Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders is written from the perspective of the practicing clinician and addresses adjustment disorders, acute stress disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder, which make up the DSM-5 category of trauma- and stressor-related disorders. The theoretical underpinnings of these disorders are thoroughly examined, but the focus of this volume is on practice. Perhaps the most difficult task facing the clinician working with stressed and potentially traumatized patients is differentiating between normal human behavior and pathological responses to traumatic situations. The editors and contributing authors offer detailed and compelling case vignettes that illustrate and illuminate the new diagnostic criteria and latest evidence-based interventions. This volume is concise, comprehensive, and case oriented, providing insight and guidance for psychiatrists, psychologists, and trainees, especially those working in military and other occupational health settings. Structured for easy evaluation of learning outcomes and replete with useful Web sites and suggested reading, Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders is an invaluable resource for clinicians seeking to understand the myriad factors that may influence a person's reaction to trauma and the array of therapeutic techniques available to support and heal the patient.

Review:

Casey and Strain s Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders is the book for anyone, from first-year clinical students to seasoned clinical researchers, who wants to get beyond the DSM s symptom lists and understand the thinking behind the new DSM chapter devoted to the trauma- and stress-related disorders such as PTSD, adjustment disorder, and the new category of persistent complex bereavement-related disorder. --Jerome C. Wakefield, Ph.D., D.S.W., University Professor, Professor of Social Work, and Professor of Psychiatry, New York University; co-author of The Loss of Sadness: How Psychiatry Transformed Normal Sorrow into Depressive Disorder (Oxford 2007)

Expert witnesses provide opinions that assist the delivery of justice. They are often required to have regard to relevant research. In the field of trauma- and stress-related disorders, there have been considerable developments in recent years. This textbook will therefore be of enormous assistance to psychiatric expert witnesses. It thoroughly and comprehensively reviews the relevant research and assists as to the reliability and implications of many of the studies reported. --Professor Keith Rix, Honorary Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist, Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, Visiting Professor of Medical Jurisprudence, Institute of Medicine, University of Chester, UK

Book Description American Psychiatric Association Publishing, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Both academically rigorous and clinically practical, Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders is fully informed by the new DSM-5 category that includes adjustment disorders, acute stress disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Stress and trauma have long been recognized as playing a role in the etiology of certain psychiatric disorders, and this book delineates normal and pathological responses to stress, providing a conceptual framework for understanding trauma- and stressor-related disorders. An individual s response to stress depends on numerous genetic, developmental, cognitive, psychological, and neurobiological risk and protective factors, and these are examined from both a scientific and clinical perspective. Central to the book s utility is its presentation of clinical vignettes that help the reader to contextualize the information presented and model effective clinical skills.Among the volume s critically important topics and features are A robust section on assessing the psychosocial factors associated with resilience (e.g., optimism, cognitive flexibility, a social support network), encouraging and enhancing these factors, and implementing psychosocial interventions to aid patients who have experienced trauma to promote resilience by targeting these factors. A comprehensive chapter on the medical-legal aspects of trauma- and stressor-related disorders because clinicians working with these patients frequently encounter situations that have legal implications (e.g., capacity evaluations, informed consent, confidentiality, serving as a witness in court proceedings). Full coverage of controversies unique to this group of disorders. For example, because no other set of DSM-5 diagnoses require a stressor as an etiological agent, this dimension can add considerable controversy to these diagnoses. Comprehensive overview of the development of the stress and trauma disorders chapter of the upcoming revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11, expected for 2017), including crosswalk tables to compare ICD-10, DSM-5, and the planned ICD-11 and featuring a summary of the evidence base for specific treatments for ICD-10 or ICD-11 stress and trauma disorder categories. In addition, key points, informative Web sites, and recommended reading at the end of each chapter are designed to consolidate and extend the practitioner s knowledge base. Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders provides readers with the latest research and treatment recommendations in an expertly edited, easy-to-use format that will earn its place in the clinician s library.
