""The two books in the Stress After War series are companion manuals, the first designed as a reference guide for the clinician that is meant to be used in conjunction with the second, a workbook for the veteran. This pair of manuals can be thought of as resource guides to promote better mental health and adjustment postdeployment."" (Journal of Psychiatric Practice, Vol 15, No. 4)
""This clinician guide and client workbook set is notable for its concreteness, clarity, practicality, and specificity. This manual is a valuable and eminently practical resource for providing a structured but flexible psycho-educational intervention for veterans of war."" (Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal, Winter 2009)
""Both books are intended to be used with one another and encourage an active relationship between clinician and veteran as treatment unfolds. Both books positively contribute to the burgeoning focus on treatment modalities for the country's wounded heroes. A particular strength is the inclusion of pre - and posttests that the authors recommend using before and after the administration of this intervention. Clinicians will find both books pragmatic and designed to flexibly allow them to use these in conjunction with their own preferred treatment modality.""
