"Stress Response Syndromes is the definitive work on observation, theory, and treatment of post-traumatic conditions. The remarkable scope provides a basic understanding of the adaptive functions of memory and the conscious and unconscious processing of high impact emotional information"--Provided by publisher.
""I kept the well-supported assertions from the earlier edition and added essential new information. The most important changes involved diagnostic considerations as we head for DSM-V and ICD-11. Treatment suggestions are updated with more attention to the formulations needed for helping complex, 'real world' cases. I also updated the emotional information processing theory.""--Provided by publisher.
