“Eve Carlson, already celebrated as coauthor of the Dissociative Experiences Scale, has now written an eminently accessible, cogent clinical guide to the assessment of trauma and posttraumatic states. Especially recommended for those new to the study and treatment of trauma, this book has much to offer the seasoned trauma specialist as well.”

—John Briere, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology, University of Southern California School of Medicine

“This volume is a major contribution to the growing literature on the assessment of trauma and posttraumatic responses. Dr. Eve Carlson provides clinicians with an up-to-date and comprehensive resource on psychological trauma, its symptoms, and the various factors related to severity and outcome. Of particular value are the sensitivity with which Dr. Carlson approaches the topic and the clinical wisdom she imparts regarding the necessity and difficulty of assessing trauma responses. This book will benefit both clinicians and their clients.”

—Christine A. Courtois, PhD, Clinical Director, The CENTER: Posttraumatic Disorders Program, The Psychiatric Institute of Washington, Washington, DC, Author, Healing the Incest Wound: Adult Survivors in Therapy

“Effective psychological intervention with children and adults who have experienced trauma involves far more than identification of a trauma history. Eve Carlson makes the very important contribution of reminding clinicians that there are complex pathways between potentially traumatic experiences and negative outcomes in individuals. This guide offers specific and clinically useful ways to assess trauma impact in everyday practice.”
