1 424 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

This four-volume collection provides access to key papers which have formed our present-day understanding of the effects  of extreme trauma. Traumatic stress is an important and diverse area of research and practice that crosses disciplines including psychology, psychiatry, and cognitive behavioural psychotherapy. The literature on the topic which has emerged over the last 50 years spans a large number of fields and journals. This major work performs the services of bringing together these disparate but vital strands of research into a single publication. Edited and introduced by esteemed Editor, Michael J. Scott, the literature is arranged into four thematic volumes, designed to guide the reader through key developments in the field and provide them with a comprehensive overview.

Volume One: Introduction, History, Context
Volume Two: Approaches to The Treatment of Trauma Related Disorders
Volume Three: The Management of Secondary Traumatisation and Comorbidity

"This is an outstanding collection of papers on traumatic stress from which clinicians cannot fail to benefit. Articles have been very thoughtfully selected to provide both breadth of coverage and depth of insight. There is a most welcome focus on critical areas that are often neglected, such as treatment of comorbid conditions and the translation of evidence into practice."

"These volumes document a long and productive journey from Dr Rivers' treatment of WW1 soldiers to the current diagnosis and treatment of traumatic stress reactions. A carefully selected mosaic of papers highlight  advances in understanding, diagnosing and treating posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other reactions to trauma. The volumes also show that many important questions will still need to be investigated, such as how evidence-based therapies can be best implemented in clinical practice."
