dc.description.abstractPost-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to one or more traumatic events. It is a severe and ongoing emotional reaction to an extreme psychological trauma, such as someone's death, a threat to life, serious physical injury, or threat to physical and/or psychological integrity. This book begins with a description of PTSD and other related problems often experienced by survivors, a short history of developments in the field and information on assessment, theory, research findings, and treatment procedures. Further chapters reflect new theoretical thinking and directions in the field of trauma, e.g., growth following adversity. It discusses the types of support that should be provided at an early stage for individuals and families affected and presents this information in a practical and accessible way. Though mainly intended for sufferers of post-traumatic stress, and their families and friends, this book will also be of interest to the general reader and an invaluable resource for professionals, such as general practitioners, clinical psychologists, psychiatric nurses and those in the voluntary sector.
