The most useful professional reference for treating PTSD I have ever found. If I could only have five books on psychology on my shelf, this would be one of them. Matsakis does a masterful, thorough and organized job of examining different aspects of PTSD causes and symptoms and different approaches and phases of treatment, in concrete and easy-to-apply terms. Too many books on psychology are filled with fascinating theoretical stuff, but are silent on how to translate it into treatment technique ...more

Recommends it for: Ptsd suffers or carers
Recommended to Tracey by: Hobart clinic
Shelves: self-help
This book has been my life safer over the many years of suffering ptsd. It is the best reference book I've purchased and well worth the money I spend. I read when I'm having a bad moment in my life caused by ptsd and it helps me alot and when i can't get into my councellor it helps me get through. it's got everything in it you need to know. Highly recommended.

“However, if you do not believe your clients, they may sense your doubt and never fully trust you. As Bruce Goderez (1986), director of a PTSD inpatient unit says, "It is important for the clinician and counselor to be willing to be made a fool." In other words, it is better that you believe a client who is lying or distorting the truth than to disbelieve a hurting trauma survivor who may never seek help again if your attitude is one of disbelief or disdain. Even if that client were to continue in therapy, they would never fully trust you.” 0 likes
