Handbook of PTSD, Third Edition, should be on the bookshelf of every clinician who treats PTSD, every graduate student who wants to do so, and every trauma researcher. The editors are the rock stars of PTSD. Comprehensive yet accessible, this work is a testament to all the scientific and clinical progress that has been achieved in the field.”

—Barbara Olasov Rothbaum, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Psychiatry, and Director, Emory Healthcare Veterans Program and Trauma and Anxiety Recovery Program, Emory University School of Medicine

“The third edition of this handbook helps fill many clinical and research gaps and sets the stage for future research. Several important new chapters address the revised diagnostic criteria for PTSD, the establishment of a PTSD brain bank, treatment of comorbid disorders, the psychoneurobiology of resilience, and dissemination and implementation science. The volume provides excellent coverage of the most vital topics for clinicians and researchers. I would use it as a required text for our doctoral course titled Military Health Psychology.”

—Alan L. Peterson, PhD, ABPP, Krus Endowed Chair in Psychiatry and Director, STRONG STAR Consortium to Alleviate PTSD, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio

“Once again, the Handbook meets its lofty goal of advancing our understanding of PTSD. This volume fully updates the field and is a cornucopia of synthesis, integration, and review of the cradle-to-grave issues involving PTSD. The examination of treatments at the family and community levels is especially important, given how we have seen families and communities so affected by world events. Comprehensive and authoritative, this book should be kept within arm's reach of clinicians, researchers, and educators, and is an excellent text for a graduate course on traumatic stress.”

—Stevan E. Hobfoll, PhD, ABPP, private practice, Chicago, Illinois; former Presidential Professor, Department of Behavioral Sciences, Rush University Medical Center

“A momentous addition to the literature. This third edition will serve as a critical reference for clinicians, researchers, and students by providing cutting-edge research and practical insights into the science and clinical impact of PTSD. It presents exemplary clinical approaches to keep in mind with our patients. Thank you to the authors and editors for this fantastic accomplishment!”

—Kerry J. Ressler, MD, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer, McLean Hospital; Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
