Doody's Review Service

“A comprehensive, practical resource for clinicians and others who treat military personnel....I highly recommend this book to mental health professionals, chaplains, and health care providers who may work with the military. It may also be of interest to military members and their families, and treatment providers who are new to the VA system.”

International Journal of Emergency Mental Health (on the first edition)

“Moore and Penk have once again assembled a 'who’s who' of leading researchers to present the latest on evidence-based treatments for PTSD in military personnel. The second edition of this handbook is an absolute 'must read' for anyone who provides care to this population. The detailed insights into important considerations for working with military personnel, careful attention to clinical issues that frequently co-occur with PTSD, and clearly presented case examples that illustrate how to implement the various treatments successfully are what make this volume stand apart.”

—Brian P. Marx, PhD, National Center for PTSD, VA Boston Healthcare System; Department of Psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine

“This volume covers every key topic related to helping those suffering from PTSD after military trauma. The second edition provides a thorough update of issues, treatment approaches, and distinctive clinical presentations. Clinicians and researchers in the field cannot afford to miss this volume, which boasts many of the world’s foremost experts in both PTSD and military psychiatry. Destined to be the gold-standard reference.”

—Richard A. Bryant, PhD, School of Psychology, University of New South Wales, Australia

“Noted clinician-scholars Moore and Penk provide up-to-date, detailed guidance on empirically supported trauma treatments, helping practitioners become both knowledgeable and culturally competent for engaging with military members, veterans, and their families. The editors have ensured that each chapter offers comprehensive, practical coverage of assessment, treatment, and progress monitoring. Well-edited chapters address interventions ranging from cognitive-behavioral to psychodynamic approaches, from individual to group to couple and family therapies, and from psychopharmacological to complementary and alternative treatments. The volume also includes specific discussions of common co-occurring conditions, which community practitioners will find very useful.”

—James A. Martin, PhD, LICSW, Colonel, U.S. Army (Retired); Professor of Social Work and Social Research, Bryn Mawr College

“This second edition represents an important advancement in mapping the landscape of PTSD, including its diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. As geopolitical political conflicts only get more complex, PTSD has become the signature injury of military engagement. Moore and Penk introduce psychology as a modern tool for understanding and helping those who are struggling in the aftermath of traumatic experiences. This is an essential and comprehensive reference that belongs in the library of anyone working with military personnel.”
