Treating Complex Traumatic Stress Disorders (Adults): Scientific Foundations and Therapeutic Models
Christine A. Courtois, Julian D. Ford
Guilford Press, Feb 5, 2009 - Psychology - 488 pages
Combining scientific and clinical perspectives, this volume brings together leading authorities on complex traumatic stress and its treatment in adults. Contributors review the research that supports the conceptualization of complex traumatic stress as distinct from PTSD. They explore the pathways by which chronic trauma can affect psychological development, attachment security, and adult relationships. Chapters describe evidence-based assessment tools and an array of treatment models for individuals, couples, families, and groups.
