Psychology of Trauma 101 is a concise, current, balanced, and accessible overview of one of psychological trauma. It is grounded in current research on trauma and its effects, but also considers how it is diagnosed and is treated with both conventional and CAM methods. Written by a leading researcher and clinician, Psychology of Trauma 101 is an entry-level text for students. It includes first-person accounts from trauma survivors and describes how trauma affects family members and caregivers.
At last, an introductory college text for the burgeoning field of psychological trauma. Accessible yet scientifically based, this text covers in an outstanding way the fundamentals of trauma exposure and the psychological disorders that can ensue. Written with care and respect, this book will be an important addition to the growing number of courses on this topic. I am deeply impressed by the depth and breadth of the coverage of this important clinical and scientific field.”
