The Psychobiology of Trauma and Resilience Across the Lifespan is the first book to address risk and resilience factors for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from a developmental perspective. Similarities and differences in risk factors, disease comorbidities and treatment between children and adults are addressed, and the book culminates in a working model to guide further research into the psychobiology of PTSD.
Douglas L. Delahanty is a professor of psychology at Kent State University, and has published extensively in the area of trauma and PTSD.
