The National Institute of Mental Health reports that more than 5.2 million Americans suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in any given year. Traumatic stress disorders are most often associated with veterans who have lived through harsh combat conditions, but anyone who has had a traumatic experience may develop a stress disorder. Catastrophic weather, child abuse, tragic accidents, terrorism, and violent crime are a few of the many agents that can lead to a traumatic stress disorder. Although PTSD is widely recognized, there are many other trauma-related disorders that people can develop both as physical and mental disorders. The Encyclopedia of Trauma and Traumatic Stress Disorders presents more than 300 entries in straightforward, jargon-free language. It is a handy reference for anyone researching or coping with the effects of trauma.
