The Clinical Manual for Management of PTSD brings together dozens of experts from around the world to provide clinicians with the latest information on posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). As a practical resource, this manual covers a wide range of topics relevant to clinical practice and addresses both the basics of each area as well as specific aspects of diagnosis and treatment.

This clinical manual is an effort to bridge the gap between the research community and the clinician by providing an easy-to-use source of clinically relevant information on PTSD. This clinical manual is designed to be a practical guide by the bedside, on rounds, or in the classroom. It can be used in multiple ways:
As a complete text for clinicians, residents, and students to gain a solid understanding of PTSD’s various manifestations and the current treatment modalities available
As a desktop reference for experienced clinicians to read specific parts that are most pertinent to aspects of their daily practice
For simple use and ease of reference, this text is divided into several sections: first, an overview of the history, biology, epidemiology, assessment methods, and comorbidities of PTSD; second, explorations of the various modes of therapeutics and management; and third, special topics such as PTSD in military settings, sexual assault, older and juvenile victims of trauma, and traumatic brain injury. This structure ensures that readers understand the complexities of this disorder as well as the best practices for these situations.
Covers neurobiology and epidemiology of the disorder
Provides an overview of diagnosis and comorbidities, as well as PTSD as a manifestation in conjunction with other diagnoses
Describes various treatments, including pharmacology, therapy, managing aggression and violence, emerging therapies, and disability issues
Touches on specific patient populations, such as children and adolescents, sexual assault survivors, military and veteran populations, geriatrics, and TBI patients, as well as sociocultural considerations
Presents controversial aspects of the diagnosis
Includes numerous tables to help summarize the available data
While the concepts and therapeutic modalities presented in this manual are supported by convincing research and a robust evidence basis for efficacy, the authors also encourage clinicians to make use of their understanding of the individual patient, the context of any treatment, and further individualized inquiry when considering any therapy discussed in this text. The Clinical Manual for Management of PTSD provides clinicians and students with a consolidated and thoughtful reference which can be used to complement and enhance their everyday practice.
