Psychology of Trauma 101 is exceptionally well-written, easy to read, and enriched with empirical findings and discussions related to trauma psychology. Therefore, this book would help any beginning mental health professional better understand the current state of trauma research, theory, and treatment; and thus, Psychology of Trauma 101 is highly recommended. ” — Erin K. Poindexter, Journal of Loss and Trauma
As trauma research and practice grow, practitioners, trainees, and others struggle to acquire and apply critical information to help the traumatized. In Psychology of Trauma 101, Lesia Ruglass and Kathleen Kendall-Tackett fill this void with a highly readable and reliable guide for practitioners and students in promoting posttraumatic growth and resilience.
Charles R. Figley, PhD, Tulane University
Our knowledge about the psychological effects of traumatic events has grown dramatically over the past three decades. Psychology of Trauma 101 is a concise, current, and accessible overview of this critical issue, including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), its causes, and its physical and mental consequences. Grounded in the most up-to-date research and theories on trauma and its effects, this text not only covers the concepts of what trauma is and the ways in which different kinds of traumas affect people, but also considers how it is diagnosed in the wake of DSM-5 and is treated with both conventional and alternative methods.
Richly illustrated with first-person accounts from trauma survivors, this book encompasses theories, diagnosis, and treatment as well as how trauma affects family members and caregivers. It also addresses the variables of gender, race/ethnicity, and culture as they bear on trauma psychology and the potential health consequences of trauma. In addition, the book illuminates controversies in the field and such emerging topics as posttraumatic growth, multiple traumas, and how traumatic events affect communities. Written by a team of leading researchers and clinicians in the field, the book is an ideal introduction to this critical topic for students and practitioners.

  1. Rick L. Austin

    We think about trauma as being plainly and obviously physical. When, in reality, the mental trauma our friends, neighbors and students go through is so much more debilitating. This should be recommended reading for educators at every level
    It will provide you with a much needed understanding of what affects our friends, neighbors and families. Highly recommend this book. Perhaps you may even see yourself in the pages.
