Description - Posttraumatic Stress Disorder by Gerald Rosen
Controversy has surrounded Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ever since the diagnosis was created in 1980, and despite claims to the contrary there remains little consensus of opinion amongst trauma experts. This book brings together leading authorities to focus attention upon clarification and analysis of a range of issues pertinent to the disorder. It opens by considering the contentious debates around the validity of PTSD as a diagnostic entity, then moves on to examine biological and memory processes that have been advanced as unique markers of PTSD. Issues and controversies associated with the diagnosis and treatment of post-trauma reactions are considered, and a final section considers the implications for clinicians and looks ahead to what may happen next.
