“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

“From leaders in the field, this is one of the most comprehensive books available on PTSD. It covers all the major treatment approaches, as well as associated clinical issues, and is the first volume to apply this amazingly useful knowledge to the specific needs of Service Members and Veterans. Case vignettes bring each treatment approach to life. This is a 'must read' for anyone working with the military or with PTSD patients more broadly, and will give students preparing to intern in a VA hospital the cultural competence needed to work within the military culture. I am grateful for the publication of this gem of a book.”

—Barbara Olasov Rothbaum, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Emory University School of Medicine

“While the treatment of PTSD in combat veterans is still evolving, this book provides an impressive review of the most thoroughly studied psychological treatments. Synthesizing two decades' worth of research, the volume offers clinicians valuable information. Of equal importance, it offers hope that even more progress will be made in addressing this often chronic condition.”

—Bessel A.van der Kolk, MD, Medical Director, The Trauma Center at Justice Resource Institute; Professor of Psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine

“The book is very clearly written and offers straightforward explanations of important scientific concepts. It features vital information to guide evaluation, diagnostic assessment, and decision making about clinical care for service members and veterans with PTSD. The book comes at a very appropriate time. I believe it will quickly become an essential item in the clinical arsenal of mental health professionals who interact with service members and veterans.”

—Alexander Neumeister, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY

“The mental health community can help pay the debt of gratitude owed to service members and veterans by providing consensus best practices in an ecologically valid and culturally aware manner. This requires both a rigorous application of evidence-based assessment and treatment approaches and a steadfast appreciation of the military ethos and the unique biological, behavioral, cognitive, and spiritual impact of combat and operational stress and trauma. In this excellent and timely book, Moore and Penk have assembled experts who provide state-of-the-art strategies for helping service members and veterans recover from the psychic wounds of war.”

—Brett T. Litz, PhD, Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology, Boston University; Massachusetts Veterans Epidemiological Research and Information Center, VA Boston Healthcare System
