Summary

Clinician's Guide to Treating Stress After War: Education and Coping Interventions for Veterans outlines clear strategies that mental health professionals can use to help war returnees become better able to negotiate common problems that diminish the quality of their day-to-day life, such as sleep issues, irritability, and getting along with family, friends, and colleagues. This powerful and practical resource helps mental health professionals promote better health and better outcomes in veterans using tools such as: Individualized self-assessments of symptoms and concerns Effective suggestions, tips, and questions to enable veterans to work at their own pace on their unique problems Proven techniques for stress management and guidance on developing coping skills Useful handouts, worksheets, and quizzes Based upon empirically validated treatment methods and best practice guidelines for acute and traumatic stress, this clinician's manual and its accompanying workbook emphasize a wellness model. They were developed and refined through the authors' twenty years of combined clinical experience working with veterans. Clinician's Guide to Treating Stress After War assists professionals to instill hope and enthusiasm in their clients, with the ultimate goal of increasing each individual's sense of control over his or her life.
