About this item

Drawing on scientific evidence, the author discusses the assessment and treatment of acute stress disorder and the importance of initial reactions to psychological response to trauma. He addresses the biology and cognitive features of acute stress disorder, its relationship to posttraumatic stress disorder, and diagnostic guidelines based on the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders; evidence-based assessment and treatment procedures, such as psychological debriefing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and pharmacotherapy, and dealing with challenges like avoidance, dissociative reactions, anger, grief, and rumination; and working with specific populations, such as those with mild traumatic brain injury, military personnel and first responders, and children, and forensic issues.
