Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Related Diseases in Combat Veterans

Editor: Ritchie, Elspeth Cameron (Ed.)

This book takes a case-based approach to addressing the challenges psychiatrists and other clinicians face when working with American combat veterans after their return from a war zone. Written by experts, the book concentrates on a wide variety of concerns associated with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), including different treatments of PTSD. The text also looks at PTSD comorbidities, such as depression and traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other conditions masquerading as PTSD. ÖOther subjects: returning veterans, including pain, disability, facing the end of a career, sleep problems, suicidal thoughts, violence, and mefloquine ìtoxidromeî. Each case study includes a case presentation, diagnosis and assessment, treatment and management, outcome and case resolution, and clinical pearls and pitfalls.
