This book combines cutting-edge research analysis with succinct and useable clinical recommendations for treating traumatized clients

In this well-referenced book, seasoned researchers and clinicians share their expertise on diagnosis and evaluation, risk and process factors, and prevention and early intervention. In addition to an essential overview of the state of the literature on acute reactions to trauma, Acute Reactions to Trauma and Psychotherapy: A Multidisciplinary and International Perspective presents immediately useful clinical considerations and interventions that are effective in practice with children and adults and recommends directions for further research.

Acute Reactions to Trauma and Psychotherapy addresses vital aspects of diagnosis and evaluation, including:
  • the relationship between acute reactions and later PTSD—with a focus on the immediate aftermath of trauma and a clear, succinct summary of ASD, including its utility and limitations
  • the stressor criterion (necessary for diagnoses of PTSD and ASD)
  • critical issues in longitudinal disaster research—with data from survivors of the Oklahoma City bombing
  • risk factors for ASD in children with burns
  • the relationship between traumatic history and brain structure and function
Risk and process factors are also examined. You’ll find:
  • data on acute stress reactions to 9/11 in juveniles and adults from a large, nationwide representative sample
  • up-to-date information on children and adolescents’ adjustment processes in the aftermath of trauma from a residential fire—with an emphasis on avoidant coping and suggestions for organizing risk factors both conceptually and temporally, and for distinguishing risk factors from vulnerability factors
Prevention and early intervention are also explored, with:
  • a summary of various dimensions of acute stress reactions, course of symptom recovery, components of interventions, and outcome assessment
  • an overview of the treatment of traumatized children—with specific suggestions for clinical practice, research, and public policy
  • an examination of research findings regarding the usefulness of pre-trauma factors and subjective accounts of the severity of the trauma for predicting later PTSD—with a clear description of a recommended “Screen and Treat” approach
From terminology and definitions to diagnostic issues and clinical considerations, Acute Reactions to Trauma and Psychotherapy: A Multidisciplinary and International Perspective contains information that should be at the fingertips of every clinician and researcher whose work involves the aftermath of trauma.
