“A well-researched, comprehensive, novel look at the intricacies of gender issues in the context of the etiology, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)....This book is a must read for the clinician who does psychotherapy, an important read for the graduate student learning about how to work with individuals who have experienced a traumatic event, and an enjoyable and rather easy-to-follow read for the lay person who is interested in the phenomenon of PTSD.”

The American Journal of Family Therapy


“This comprehensive book, with chapters by leading researchers, integrates existing data on gender and PTSD into a single volume. Each chapter addresses a specific dimension of gender and PTSD, provides a review of current data, and identifies areas in need of further research. Authors demonstrate an appreciation for the complex issues involved in studying gender. Researchers, clinicians and graduate students will find this book of great value.”

“This unique book is the first to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date review of existing literature on gender and the etiology, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of PTSD. It expertly covers interactions among gender, ethnicity, and social status, translating quantitative and qualitative research into specific recommendations for clinicians and researchers. The book is a key source to educate practitioners about empirically supported guidelines to help manage gender issues in the treatment of trauma and PTSD.”
