Psychological Trauma

£18.99

Product description

"How many of your psychiatric patients have a history of severe physical or sexual abuse or other psychological trauma?

These patterns often present diagnostic dilemmas, get a variety of diagnoses, and frequently prove difficult to treat. They may have syndromes which are reminiscent of the post-traumatic sequelae in adults such as physiological hyperactivity, a sense of a loss of control, passivity alternating with uncontrolled violence, and sleep disturbances including nightmares. Investigating the impact of the traumatic event in connection with the development of the disorder is essential to an effective treatment approach.

'Psychological Trauma' provides a basis for understanding human response to trauma. The consequences of specific traumas have usually been described as separate entities. This is the first book to examine human response to trauma as a whole. In this thorough study of the biologic, psychodynamic and social consequences of trauma, separate chapters explore:

- the impact of separation from the parental figure on a child's development;
- the psychobiology of traumatic response;
- traumatic antecedents of borderline personality disorder;
- the effect of trauma on the family unit;
- amnesia and dissociation as responses to trauma;
- a stress management approach that can be incorporated into the treatment of patients."

Book pages and cover are in fine condition. The uncut dust cover shows some light scratching and wear at the edges.
