Post-Traumatic Syndromes in Childhood and Adolescence: A Handbook of Research and Practiceby Vittoria Ardino
Synopses & Reviews
Post-Traumatic Syndromes in Childhood and Adolescence provides a critical and comprehensive framework on post-traumatic reactions in children and adolescents; it offers a wide-ranging overview of up-to-date research and intervention approaches for traumatized youth, highlighting uncharted territories in the field of developmental trauma and related post-traumatic reactions.
The book emphasizes the state-of-the art developments in assessment, diagnosis and treatment of PTSD in children and adolescents. It also explores new research studies which could lead to future developments in supporting young victims of trauma, including youth involved in the criminal justice system.
Bringing together the work of major contributors to the field, and marking the progress that has been made in almost three decades of scientific discovery and achievement, Post-traumatic Syndromes in Childhood and Adolescence will act as a starting-point for further exploration of a major issue in the psychology of young people.
Book News Annotation:
Ardino (forensic psychology, London Metropolitan U., UK) brings together 22 chapters by psychologists and psychiatrists from Europe, North America, and Israel to explain the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder in children and adolescents. They discuss risk and protective factors; context-specific reactions like family stressors, medical illness and injury, and migration trauma; neurobiology, memory, and dissociative processes involved in trauma; forensic aspects like allegations of child sexual abuse and post-traumatic stress in antisocial youth; psychosocial interventions in schools and communities; and therapeutic models such as eye movement desensitization reprocessing, cognitive-behavioral models, and emotion regulation.
