It is estimated that right now, approximately 1.5 million adult female rape victims in the USA country suffer from chronic PTSD. Yet despite advances in psychosocial treatments for PTSD, information about treatment programs has not been widely disseminated among frontline mental health professionals working with trauma victims. This invaluable resource provides a step-by-step guide to using empirically proven brief therapy techniques with female sexual assault victims suffering from PTSD. Filling an urgent need for practitioners working within managed care guidelines, the book enables clinicians to effectively design time-limited, individualized treatment programs for clients exhibiting a range of trauma-related problems. After reviewing the relevant treatment literature, the authors detail how to assess and treat PTSD using a cognitive-behavioral approach. Complete instructions are given for planning treatment, as well as for introducing the patient to the various interventions. Nine exposure and stress management techniques are then detailed, including imaginal exposure (trauma reliving), in vivo exposure, relaxation training, thought-stopping, cognitive restructuring, covert modeling, and role-playing. Enhancing the book's clinical utility are numerous case examples illustrating how to implement the techniques, as well as explanations of how to cope with common problems and complications in treatment. The final chapter presents detailed outlines of three suggested treatment programs. 'Drs. Foa and Rothbaum have written a splendid monograph on the treatment of sexual assault survivors....In addition to being a first-rate work of scholarship, this book provides detailed, explicit guidance on how to conduct state-of-the-art treatment for survivors of sexual assault. Accordingly, this excellent book is essential reading for mental health professionals who work with women who have been raped.' - Richard J. McNally, PhD, Professor, Department of Psychology, Harvard University 'This volume exemplifies manualized treatment....Given the authors' empirical grounding, clear thinking, lucid writing, and extensive clinical experience, this volume should be of great value to any therapist who is treating PTSD - regardless of theoretical bent. There is no more straightforward, empirically based approach to treating psychological trauma.' --- Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic 'Although Foa and Rothbaum are known above all for their achievements as researchers, their book also displays the compassion and refined sensitivity that are hallmarks of accomplished clinicians....[This book] contains coverage of a spectrum of cognitive-behavioral interventions for PTSD at a level of detail that is not readily available elsewhere.' --- Psychotherapy in Private Practice 'This book is an excellent training tool for both experienced and novice therapists....An outstanding resource.' --- Psychotherapy Research '[The authors] succeed in helping all of us who work with victims of trauma develop a treatment approach that we can use not only to understand our patients' suffering but also to teach them that recovery can and does occur.' --- Psychiatric Services 'All of the treatment description chapters are particularly wonderful. They provide great detail on length of sessions and all of the specific procedures. In addition, invaluable case examples are provided and specific problems that may come up are addressed. This book will be an incredible resource for clinicians and academicians.' --- Heidi Resnick, PhD, National Crime Victims Research & Treatment Center, Medical University of South Carolina Audience: Mental health professionals, including clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, and rape crisis counselors, as well as students and trainees in these fields. Classroom Use: May serve as a supplementary text in graduate-level psychotherapy, counseling, and crisis intervention courses. Contents: I. What Do We Know about PTSD Following Assault? 1.
