Synopsis

`If you get a chance to dip into it, do, and, if you're using your Samaritan training and experience to further your career in counselling, you will find it, like all the other books in this series, a helpful overview of the subject' - The Samaritan

Completely revised and updated to take account of developments in the understanding of trauma responses, the Second Edition of Counselling for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder synthesizes knowledge of both the biological and psychological effects and translates these into practical strategies for use in counselling.

The book is unique in covering the full spectrum of trauma, which may initiate PTSD. It provides a clear and detailed account of how PTSD can be recognized and treated and includes chapters on:

* diagnostic criteria

* client assessment

* the development and course of PTSD

* the cognitive-behavioural approach to treatment

Using vivid case examples, Mike Scott and Stephen Stradling outline a range of techniques for counselling clients who have suffered major trauma whether recent or many years ago. In addition they give guidance on helping trauma victims with the additional burdens of panic disorder, substance abuse and physical disability.

Counselling for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Second Edition will be invaluable to all who work therapeutically with traumatized clients.
