The mental health effects of disasters and terror events can be severe, and are most effectively characterized as differing stress reactions with psychological consequences. Empirical studies show that addressing these consequences requires a staged approach to care. This volume, written by leading experts, provides professionals with practical, evidence-based guidance on diagnosis and treatment following disaster and terrorist events - and does so in a uniquely "reader-friendly" manner. It is both a compact "how-to" reference, for use by professional clinicians, as well as an ideal educational resource for students and professionals and for practice-oriented continuing education. The unique feature of the book is that it outlines a staged approach for post-disaster mental health care, based on empirically supported principles of treatments that work. Practical and reader-friendly, it is a compact and easy-to-follow guide covering all aspects that are relevant in real-life.
