Posttraumatic stress disorder and maladaptive substance use frequently co-occur, and the state of research has advanced significantly since the first edition of this text. Editors Ouimette (clinical research, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs) and Read (psychology, SUNY, Buffalo) offer this second edition, divided into large sections addressing basic features of the intersection, special issues and populations, and treatment models. Scope, etiological understandings, and the self-medication hypothesis are covered in the first section, while the second section discusses research ethics, natural disaster victims, military veterans, tobacco use, and domestic violence in the context of PTSD-substance misuse issues. New material here highlights gaps in knowledge in child, adolescent, and elderly age groups. The section on treatment is also significantly updated, with the final chapter suggesting newly available technology-based approaches. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
