Summary

The National Institute of Mental Health reports that more than 5.2 million Americans suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder in any given year. Although often associated with veterans who have experienced harsh combat conditions, PTSD may afflict anyone who suffers or witnesses a violent attack or event. All too often the condition is incorrectly diagnosed. Posttraumatic stress disorder is widely recognized, but there are many variations as to how it presents itself and numerous related disorders that can complicate its diagnosis and treatment. New therapies are emerging, and therapy for trauma has replaced anxiety or depression as the leading treatment for mental health disorders.

The Encyclopedia of Trauma and Traumatic Stress Disorders presents more than 300 entries covering all aspects of the subject and related topics. Written in straightforward, jargon-free language, this fascinating and comprehensive book is perfect for anyone researching or coping with the effects of trauma.

Entries include:

  • Acute stress disorder
  • Biological factors related to trauma
  • Childhood trauma
  • Depression
  • Fight-or-flight response
  • Medications used with trauma
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder
  • Recovered memory
  • Spirituality and trauma
  • Types of therapy
  • and more.
