Existing chapters have been fully rewritten and seven entirely new chapters added, addressing recent developments in classification; emerging applications of neuroimaging and pharmacological probes; legal and forensic issues in assessment; assessment of comorbid PTSD and substance abuse; and effects of trauma on physical health.
