While there are unique aspects to be considered for clinical work with survivors of different types of trauma, the volume demonstrates that that there are basic principles that can be applied across PTSD populations. Grounded in a unified conceptual model, behavioral strategies are outlined for assessing and treating combat veterans, battered women, and children and adults who have been sexually assaulted. In each chapter, specific assessment instruments that have proven useful are identified, and the applications of behavioral treatment methods are carefully described. Special features include a decision-making tree for guiding the process of diagnostic assessment in combat-related PTSD and a symptom checklist for monitoring changes in core PTSD symptoms over the course of therapy.
