Om boka

Rauch and McLean bridge the gap between neuroscience research and the treatment of PTSD patients.

Individuals with PTSD have developed automatic associations between specific stimuli and traumatic events. As a result, these individuals experience intense fear when exposed to the stimuli, even though the original threat is no longer present.

This book presents prolonged exposure therapy (PE), a specific manualized exposure therapy program for PTSD. A variant of exposure therapy, PE is a cognitive behavioral approach designed to reduce pathological anxiety and related emotions by helping patients approach relatively safe but distress-provoking thoughts, memories, situations, and stimuli, with the goal of reducing unhelpful emotional reactions to those stimuli.

Informed by extensive research but written for clinicians, the book explains how neuroscience can guide our application of the three key components of PE: (1) psychoeducation about the nature of trauma, (2) in vivo exposure to trauma reminders, and (3) imaginal exposure to the memory of the traumatic event followed by processing of the imaginal and other exposures.

Om forfatteren

Sheila A. M. Rauch, PhD, ABPP, is a professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Emory University School of Medicine and serves as deputy director of the Emory Healthcare Veterans Program and director of mental health research and program evaluation at the VA Atlanta Healthcare System. She has been developing programs, conducting research, and providing treatment for PTSD and anxiety disorders for over 20 years. She has published scholarly articles, chapters, and books on anxiety disorders and PTSD, focusing on neurobiology and factors involved in the development, maintenance, and treatment of anxiety disorders.

Carmen P. McLean, PhD, is a clinical psychologist at the National Center for PTSD's Dissemination and Training Division at the Palo Alto VA and a clinical associate professor (affiliate) at Stanford University. She's an associate editor for Cognitive Behavioral Practice and a 2018 recipient of the Anne Marie Albano Early Career Award for Excellence in the Integration of Science and Practice from the Association for Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies. She's published over 100 articles and chapters on PTSD and anxiety. Her research examines ways to increase the reach of exposure therapy for PTSD by addressing implementation barriers and testing eHealth interventions.
