Scott, the literature is arranged into four thematic volumes, designed to guide the reader through key developments in the field and provide them with a comprehensive overview.

"These volumes document a long and productive journey from Dr Rivers' treatment of WW1 soldiers to the current diagnosis and treatment of traumatic stress reactions. A carefully selected mosaic of papers highlight  advances in understanding, diagnosing and treating posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other reactions to trauma. The volumes also show that many important questions will still need to be investigated, such as how evidence-based therapies can be best implemented in clinical practice."
