Book Description

21 Sep 2006 1593853262 978-1593853266 1

Grounded in the latest clinical and neurobiological research, this book provides both an understanding of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a guide to empirically supported treatment. The author offers well-documented, practical recommendations for planning and implementing cognitive-behavioral therapy with people who have experienced different types of trauma - sexual assault, combat, serious accidents, and more - and shows how to use a case formulation approach to tailor interventions to the needs of each patient. Coverage includes different conceptual models of PTSD, integrating psychopharmacology into treatment, and addressing frequently encountered comorbid conditions. Illustrated with helpful case examples, the book features over a dozen reproducible handouts and forms

Product Description


"This book is a gem! It is comprehensive, covering both the science and art of cognitive-behavioral treatment for PTSD, yet it is also concise and user-friendly. It offers a compendium of new and established treatment methods in a case formulation approach that demonstrates how empirically supported treatment protocols can be adapted for individual patients. This volume includes everything a clinician, student, or researcher interested in PTSD needs to know. Taylor's thorough review of the literature even addresses neurobiology for the CBT therapist. A valuable resource for every clinician’s bookshelf." - Barbara Olasov Rothbaum, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Trauma and Anxiety Recovery Program, Emory University School of Medicine, USA

"Sophisticated, up to date, and comprehensive. Rich with clinical examples, this book is a valuable resource for mental health clinicians who work or intend to work with clients suffering from PTSD related to almost any source of traumatization, from natural disasters and serious accidents to rape and intimate partner abuse. The author draws on extensive clinical and research experience to help the clinician understand the bases of client problems, plan treatment, and implement cognitive and exposure interventions. In the classroom, this book would be suitable as a primary text for graduate-level courses on posttraumatic stress or as a supplemental text for courses on psychopathology." - Edward S. Kubany, in private practice, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

5.0 out of 5 stars Taylor hits the button 20 Oct 2008
By B. S. Parsonson - Published on
Steven Taylor has produced a text that more than fulfills its title, since it serves as a clinician's guide but underpins that with a sound evaluation of the available research. An excellent book for clinicians and grad students wanting to learn about CBT and PTSD interventions. We are using this as one of the texts for training clinicians to treat PTSD in post-conflict Georgia and it has proven its worth.

By J. Hubbs - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is great and the information is still current 2010. For the price of an older edition it was just an incredible buy. As a 20 year seasoned clinican I would highly reccomend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read 2 Mar 2011
By Anthony Parsons - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book easy to read, insightful, clear, concise and hits points quickly without becoming lost in explanatory wording. Wasn't a fan of the deviation regarding exposure therapy, introducing interoceptive type, which for many with severe trauma could be re-traumatizing vs. beneficial, though overall extremely happy with the remainder of content and a recommended read.

4.0 out of 5 stars not that bad 15 Mar 2014
By compson - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
provided a very solid, basic foundation for understanding ptsd and trauma in general. even without a firm background in cbt, this book is useful. particularly because it is basic and direct in its explanations and suggestions.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 27 May 2013
By Silas Silason - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has very practical and extensive information on using cognitive-behavioral therapy in the treatment of PTSD. Very well researched. Would recommend that you have some background in CBT already before reading it. This is targeted for a clinician FYI, not really patients. If you are a person with PTSD seeking help with anxiety/fear and self help, I would recommend the PTSD Workbook by Williams and Poijula.
