From our regular book review column.
Effective Treatments for PTSD, edited by Drs. Foa, Keane, and Friedman, is a most timely book. It is attuned to our current emphasis on practice guidelines that are derived from evidence-based psychiatry. The work is sponsored by the PTSD Treatment Guidelines Task Force of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies. Although under 400 pages, the volume is exhaustive in several ways. It reviews nearly all of the relevant research literature and includes 14 different treatment approaches for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), from psychological debriefing to creative therapies, with lengthy references for all treatments.
