PTSD in Children and Adolescents

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

This volume intrigued me the moment I saw it. Pediatric posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has long seemed more difficult to identify and diagnose than the adult type, and I eagerly anticipated gaining a better understanding of PTSD in its clinical presentation and treatment. The book begins with an interesting and informative introduction by Dr. Eth that reviews the short history of pediatric PTSD. He describes his book as a "roadmap for clinicians seeking to expand their horizons in treating traumatized youth" (p. xxiii).
