Bringing PTSD treatment guidelines to life
A new book, published by the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS), provides the latest updates in the evidence about treatments that work for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and practical guidance for using those treatments in everyday clinical practice.
Effective Treatments for PTSD: Practice Guidelines from the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies is lead edited by Director of Phoenix Australia, Professor David Forbes along with co-editors Professors Jon Bisson, Candice Monson and Lucy Berliner.
Professor Forbes, also Vice-Chair of the ISTSS Guidelines committee, says, “As clinicians and researchers, we know that treating PTSD is often not straightforward. As an editorial team we wanted this book to be a very practical tool that provides clinicians with a ‘how to’ guide for using evidence-based treatments in day-to-day practice, and advice for dealing with difficult presentations”.
