After the Crash: Psychological Assessment and Treatment of Survivors of Motor Vehicle Accidents, Second Edition
Motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) have been found to be the single leading cause of posttraumatic stress disorder in the general population. They are the most frequent, directly experienced trauma for men and the second most frequent trauma for women. Since the 1997 edition of After the Crash, there has been a monumental new wave of research in the assessment and treatment of MVA survivors.
In this timely second edition, written in a clear and lucid style and illustrated by a wealth of charts, guides, case studies, and clinical advice, the authors report on new, international research and provide updates on their own longstanding research protocols within the groundbreaking Albany MVA Project. This volume will appeal to a broad audience of practitioners, researchers, and physicians; attorneys who handle MVA survivor cases; and those interested in public safety issues.
