Stress and Recovery in Viet Nam Veterans

The Trauma of War

The Trauma of War: Stress and Recovery of Vietnam Veterans is a unique psychiatric source book. This volume provides a scientific account of the psychological ravages of the war in Vietnam on the men and women who served there, but throughout the book reverberates the troubled voices of these veterans-and the sensitive voices of the mental health professionals who have been directly affected by their work with these veterans. The chief emphasis on The Trauma of War: Stress and Recovery of Vietnam Veterans involves careful evaluation of troubled veterans and sensitive but effective modes of treatment. The special readjustment needs of black, Hispanic, and women veterans are also addressed. Finally, application of this clinical material to the area of posttraumatic stress disorder research reflect the significant advances that have been made in the field since posttraumatic stress disorder was first recognized as a diagnostic entity. These advancements in research constitute a fitting legacy to the thousands of Vietnam veterans who have continued to suffer from the trauma of war.

Trauma and Recovery

The Aftermath of Violence--From Domestic Abuse to Political Terror

Trauma and Recovery

In this groundbreaking book, a leading clinical psychiatrist redefines how we think about and treat victims of trauma. A "stunning achievement" that remains a "classic for our generation." (Bessel van der Kolk, M.D., author of The Body Keeps the Score). Trauma and Recovery is revered as the seminal text on understanding trauma survivors. By placing individual experience in a broader political frame, Harvard psychiatrist Judith Herman argues that psychological trauma is inseparable from its social and political context. Drawing on her own research on incest, as well as a vast literature on combat veterans and victims of political terror, she shows surprising parallels between private horrors like child abuse and public horrors like war. Hailed by the New York Times as "one of the most important psychiatry works to be published since Freud," Trauma and Recovery is essential reading for anyone who seeks to understand how we heal and are healed.

Care of Children Exposed to the Traumatic Effects of Disaster

Care of Children Exposed to the Traumatic Effects of Disaster

The psychological consequences of disasters for children are often slighted in disaster management. Children are uniquely vulnerable, as they are still maturing physically, emotionally, cognitively, and socially. Mental health and psychosocial support services are typically overlooked, delayed, and/or haphazard during response and recovery efforts. All too often children and families usually have limited access to mental health treatment services once the emergency is past. Care of Children Exposed to the Traumatic Effects of Disaster is designed to provide professional and volunteer disaster responders, including community members, who routinely interact with children with the tools they need to support, intervene, and identify children who need additional help overcoming the traumatic effects of extreme events. The authors are experts in psychiatry and public health, and not only understand the psychological responses to trauma and disaster, but know what to do to mitigate them. The book is eloquently and compassionately written, and the authors succeed in both communicating their vision and teaching the practical techniques readers need to realize it. This is an indispensable book for an unpredictable world.

Bipolar Disorder in Youth

Presentation, Treatment and Neurobiology

Bipolar Disorder in Youth

Bipolar disorders affect up to 3% of the world's population and are the 6th leading cause of disability worldwide. The estimated annual costs of bipolar disorder approach $50 billion in the United States, and the associated societal and personal suffering is immeasurable. Bipolar disorder is a lifelong illness that typically begins in mid-adolescence, thereby disrupting healthy developmental processes. It is also a progressive illness, making early intervention even more critical. As the disorder presents differently in youth as it does in adults, considerable controversy exists around the diagnosis in young people. The neurobiological factors leading to the onset of bipolar disorder reflect abnormalities in adolescent brain development. Bipolar disorder is strongly heritable and therefore, these developmental abnormalities likely represent the culmination of processes that precede the expression of symptoms. Current studies of children who are at risk for bipolar disorder are identifying these processes. Again, controversy exists about how to move these neuroscience gains forward to help affected individuals and, particularly to manage children at risk to delay or prevent the onset or progression of bipolar disorder. With these considerations in mind, Bipolar Disorder in Youth provides a timely, focused review of the diagnosis, treatment, and neurobiology of bipolar disorder in youth. It addresses current controversies and resolves those in which evidence is available. The book is organized into three sections based on these topics to provide comprehensive discussions to aid clinicians managing these individuals in their practices, as well as scientists trying to advance the field. The three editors are widely recognized experts in bipolar disorder, and the authors of each chapter represent international experts in the respective topics. Consequently, this book is the most comprehensive volume available discussing this important population and is a 'must' for the libraries of clinicians and scientists working with bipolar children and adolescents.
