“When I received the review copy of this book, I immediately pressed it into service....The authors and editors of this book are to be commended for the neat package of materials they have assembled that provides information that both researchers and clinicians need in an unbiased yet easy-to-access style. I believe this book will be important for anyone interested in the current state of the art in trauma treatment or who wants to know what is happening in trauma research. I highly recommend this book for both scientists and practitioners.”

PsycCRITIQUES (on the second edition)

“The third edition builds on the extraordinary contributions of the two prior editions. The well-chosen authors have integrated standardized, rigorous reviews of the latest research with extremely helpful guidelines on how to apply the research recommendations in clinical practice settings. The book incorporates a number of significant advances and new topics and highlights future directions for the field in a thoughtful and practical way. This is a scientifically grounded, visionary book that is an essential resource for clinicians, researchers, and advanced graduate students.”

—Patricia J. Watson, PhD, psychologist, National Center for PTSD

“This impressive book thoroughly summarizes the state of the art in evidence-based approaches to early intervention and treatment for PTSD. It is unique in accomplishing something that previous (often technical and dry) consensus best-practice guidelines have not—it fleshes out research findings in a way that enables clinicians to make informed choices about how to best help trauma survivors in particular contexts. Chapters provide rich details about clinical procedures and discuss who is most likely to benefit, how to avoid pitfalls and maximize impact, and what to do about problems that arise. The editors and contributors are experts with tremendous training and clinical experience.”

—Brett T. Litz, PhD, Departments of Psychology and Psychiatry, Boston University

“The third edition of this book takes an important step in bridging the gap between evidence-based guidelines and clinical practice. Clinicians face an array of barriers attempting to integrate findings from randomized clinical trials into their day-to-day work. The book is genuinely unique and much needed—each chapter goes beyond the research evidence to explore the challenges of applied implementation, providing practical and effective treatment recommendations. If you are working with those struggling with PTSD, this is a 'must read' regardless of clinical setting. You simply won’t find more innovative, comprehensive coverage of this critical topic.”

—M. David Rudd, PhD, ABPP, President and Distinguished University Professor of Psychology, University of Memphis

“Congratulations to Dave Forbes, Jon Bisson, Candice Monson, and Lucy Berliner on overseeing this new edition. They have masterfully synthesized the wide-ranging research on treating PTSD that has been going on since the second edition of this volume came out. Their editorial vision has brought a fresh perspective to the ISTSS treatment guidelines, and offers the field an invaluable resource. We’re thrilled to see the careful work in this arena continue, giving guidance to practitioners and researchers around the world.”
