Description
Our knowledge about the psychological effects of traumatic events has grown dramatically over the past three decades. Psychology of Trauma 101 is a concise, current, and accessible overview of this critical issue, including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), its causes, and its physical and mental consequences. Grounded in the most up-to-date research and theories on trauma and its effects, this text not only covers the concepts of what trauma is and the ways in which different kinds of traumas affect people, but also considers how it is diagnosed in the wake of DSM-5 and is treated with both conventional and alternative methods. Richly illustrated with first-person accounts from trauma survivors, this book encompasses theories, diagnosis, and treatment as well as how trauma affects family members and caregivers. It also addresses the variables of gender, race/ethnicity, and culture as they bear on trauma psychology and the potential health consequences of trauma. In addition, the book illuminates controversies in the field and such emerging topics as posttraumatic growth, multiple traumas, and how traumatic events affect communities. Written by a team of leading researchers and clinicians in the field, the book is an ideal introduction to this critical topic for students and practitioners.--Publisher description.
