A Clinical Guide to the Treatment of the Human Stress Response
Third Edition
George S. Everly, Jr., and Jeffrey M. Lating

Praise for the third edition:

“This is a significant update for a significant book. Everly & Lating once again articulate for practitioners how best to read and manage their clients’ stress and develop effective, evidence-based treatment programs for various stress injuries and disorders. It speaks well of practitioners who have this book within eyesight when stress for themselves as well as their clients require effective action.”
Charles R. Figley, Henry Kurszeg, MD, Chair in Disaster Mental Health, Tulane University, New Orleans 

“To be effective, our understanding of human stress and suffering must be as comprehensive as the people we seek to help are complex. This superb work helps us step back and see the big picture—the complex interactions of mind, brain, personality, body, spirit, and environment—and does so in a wonderfully clear and practical way. The expansions and revisions in this new edition have made this classic even more useful. I enthusiastically recommend it for practitioners, educators, researchers, and students alike.”
Glenn R. Schiraldi, Ph.D., Lt. Col. (USAR, Ret.), University of Maryland School of Public Health 

Continuing in the tradition of its noted predecessors, the Third Edition of A Clinical Guide to the Treatment of the Human Stress Response brings the physiological and psychological aspects of stress together in a framework for improved understanding and practice. Thoroughly updated chapters, plus new additions on emerging topics such as resilience, provide theoretical and conceptual background to enhance the practical suggestions. A wealth of treatment strategies allows clinicians to find the most accurate interventions for specific client problems. And by focusing on the body’s stress response instead of on the resulting pathologies, the book offers readers guidelines for preventing worsening symptoms and future relapses. The Guide’s expert coverage includes:

• Models of the link between stress arousal and illness.
• A system-by-system overview of stress-related disorders.
• Measurement issues in stress and coping.
• Treatment strategies for stress, including cognitive therapy, neurological desensitization, biofeedback, therapeutic breathing, EMDR, and pharmacology.
• Special chapters on spirituality/religion, nutrition, grief/loss, sleep, and crisis intervention.
• A treatment model, a treatment protocol, self-report forms, and more.
• New chapters on the timely topics of “psychological first aid” and fostering “human resilience,” and more.

Students, practitioners, and researchers in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, medicine, nursing, social work, and public health will welcome the Third Edition of A Clinical Guide to the Treatment of the Human Stress Response as a timely, accessible reference to an ongoing--and mounting--challenge.
