Aiming to fulfill the need for a multifaceted approach to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), this guide addresses the importance of the stressor, places paramount the person of the victim and provides treatment procedures. The 11 authors weave a care paradigm that begins with a position: the persona of the victim organises and preserves his or her reality and the trauma makes this more so. The book provides a formula for accepting, understanding and treating the individual and helps the therapist inspect and nurture the trauma victim's self and ego skills.
