Principles of Trauma Therapy, Second Edition: DSM-5 Update (WM 170 B853pa 2015), has been added to Norris Library’s book collection. Written by John N. Briere, PhD and Catherine Scott, MD, both Clinical Faculty at the Keck School of Medicine’s Department of Psychiatry & the Behavioral Sciences, this new edition has been “Thoroughly updated with DSM-5 content throughout [and] is both comprehensive in scope and highly practical in application. This popular text provides a creative synthesis of cognitive-behavioral, relational, affect regulation, mindfulness, and psychopharmacologic approaches to the “real world” treatment of acute and chronic posttraumatic states. Grounded in empirically-supported trauma treatment techniques and adapted to the complexities of actual clinical practice, this book is a hands-on resource for front-line clinicians, those in private practice, and graduate students of public mental health.”*
