Treatment of Stress Response Syndromes

Treatment of Stress Response Syndromes is the newest work from Mardi J. Horowitz, M.D., the clinical researcher largely responsible for modern concepts of posttraumatic stress disorder (PSTD). In this book, Dr. Horowitz reveals the latest strategies for treating PTSD and expands the coverage to include several related diagnoses. Clinicians who work with patients experiencing the effects of loss, trauma, and terror, will find this handbook to be of great practical value. Readers will learn how to:

* Diagnose, formulate, and treat stress response syndromes
* Do a step-by-step formulation, emphasizing strengths as well as problems
* Use a treatment approach that shifts as the patient changes

The author guides the reader through a unique approach to treatment. Rather than organizing the book by individual diagnoses, he integrates essential explanatory principles and techniques—psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and pharmacological—into a singular approach to apply to the range of diagnostic entities.
