"The editors have assembled voices from psychology and psychiatry, research, and clinical practice. Superb editing ensures that the writing is nearly seamless, sounding as though it were written by a single author rather than by many expert contributors....Each chapter raises the level of discourse about traumatic stress in ways that are integrative rather than divisive....Friedman, Keane, and Resick provide a clear roadmap for the next 10 years of research and clinical innovation."
