Praise for Clinician's Guide to Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

"Rosen and Frueh's important book takes a huge leap toward clarity. The chapters are authored by leading experts in the field, and each addresses one of the pressing issues of the day. The tone is sensible and authoritative throughout, but always with a thoughtful ear toward clinical concerns and implications."
George A. Bonanno, PhD Professor of Clinical Psychology Teachers College, Columbia University

"All clinicians and researchers dealing with anxiety disorders should have a copy of Rosen and Frueh's Clinician's Guide to Posttraumatic Stress Disorder on their shelves. Moreover, they should read it from cover to cover. This compilation . . . is authoritative, very readable, and extremely well crafted. The issues are looked at from many vantage points, including assessment and treatment, cross-cultural, cognitive, and categorical/political."
Michel Hersen, PhD, ABPP Editor, Journal of Anxiety Disorders Dean, School of Professional Psychology, Pacific University

"Contributors to this impressive collection include Robert Spitzer, one of the architects of DSM-III, and Jerome C. Wakefield and Allan V. Horwitz, authors of The Loss of Sadness: How Psychiatry Transformed Normal Sorrow into Depressive Disorder (Oxford University Press, 2007).... It is ironic that research spurred by the introduction of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has come to challenge almost every aspect of the construct's originating assumptions. These issues are carefully discussed: the idea of a specific aetiology; the distinctiveness of the supposed core symptoms; the loosening of the stressor criterion, which editor Gerald Rosen calls 'criterion creep'.... Without a coherent position on the question of specific aetiology, the validity of PTSD rests largely on the distinctiveness of its clinical syndrome, yet its features overlap substantially with other psychiatric categories.... This book interrogates the construction of PTSD and can serve as a case example of the way to critique the construction of psychiatric knowledge across the whole field." (Derek Summerfield, The British Journal of Psychiatry, 2011, 199:347)

"Since its inception in 1980, research and theory on PTSD have grown exponentially. Making sense of the burgeoning and often contradictory findings is no small feat, especially in the context of a demanding clinical schedule. Rosen and Frueh's important book takes a huge leap toward clarity. The chapters are authored by leading experts in the field and each address one of the pressing issues of the day. The tone is sensible and authoritative throughout, but always with a thoughtful ear toward clinical concerns and implications. The scope and clarity of the writing alone make this an invaluable resource."
George A. Bonanno, Ph.D., Professor of Clinical Psychology, Department of Counseling and Clinical Psychology Teachers College, Columbia University
