Reviews

'Provides an excellent roadmap for the clinician. The authors outline the many options and choices that CBT practitioners face with patients with PTSD, and show how to deal with these within an individualized case formulation. Instructive clinical examples provide pragmatic, concrete guidance for navigating complex situations. The frequently asked questions on troubleshooting clinical roadblocks are immensely helpful. Zayfert and Becker's approach to CBT provides an excellent balance between structure and flexibility, making a real contribution to the dissemination of evidence-based treatments for PTSD. I would recommend this book to any colleague or student involved in treating those who have suffered psychological trauma and its consequences.' - Nicholas Tarrier, University of Manchester, UK 'A tool that any psychotherapist working with a variety of populations can relate to, thus making the book immediately applicable to a wide range of treatment environments... This book manages to be a significant resource for clinicians of all levels...It is an excellent learning tool for clinicians or graduate students inexperienced with PTSD who may be preparing to tackle their first cases... Simultaneously, it is also an outstanding resource for the experienced clinician, particularly one who is currently being challenged by a PTSD patient who is not processing in therapy...It will be a conduit to improve the lives of many suffering from PTSD.' - APA PsycCRITIQUES "This is a useful, clearly and coherently written book about how to use a case formulation approach to treat post-traumatic stress disorder in adults using cognitive-behavioral therapy...Each chapter offers ideas about how to handle tricky or stuck clinical situations together with lots of case examples. There are well-written photocopiable handouts on reactions to traumatic experiences, cognitive-behavioral therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder, exposure and cognitive restructuring...Overall the book presents a nice blend of evidence-based practice and a thorough clinical knowledge of working with patients. Given the trend for off-the-shelf and manualized treatment packages often to be delivered by staff with little training, this book illustrates the importance of the sophisticated therapeutic skills of being able to engage and collaborate with a patient to explore the nature of that patient's difficulties and to create a fit between the published evidence and the needs of the individual." - Sarah Helps, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 72, No. 3, March 2011 'The book is extremely well written... There is a balance of attention to objective research and clinical implications... Will be best used as either a teaching supplement in graduate programs or as an educational/clinical adjunct for seasoned therapists.' - Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy 'Finally, a CBT guide that gracefully bridges the gap between research-derived therapies and their real-world applications! In plain language, this book highlights the strength of CBT for organizing treatment that works for a lamentably common affliction, PTSD, even in patients with many problems. From literature review to case description, from session transcription to specific instruction, from assessment measures to troubleshooting, every means is exploited in the service of enabling competent care. In their clarity of clinical vision, and with evident commitment and compassion, the authors offer remedy for the concerns of the treater as well as the patient. Highly recommended.' - Elizabeth B. Simpson, Dialectical Behavior Therapy Program, Massachusetts Mental Health Center, Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA
