"Drawing on decades of research and extensive clinical experience, Dr. Foa and colleagues have produced an extremely valuable therapist manual... [It is] an essential resource for all clinicians who are serious about providing their clients with empirically supported treatment."
- Steven Taylor, PhD, ABPP
Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia
"This is the kind of essential book that should be on the shelf of any clinician who treats trauma survivors."

"Foa, Hembree, and Rothbaum provide an outstanding guide for the implementation of prolonged exposure (PE) in the treatment of PTSD. Possessing an impressive evidence base, PE is a highly effective and efficient treatment for PTSD. This detailed handbook will assist beginning and experienced therapists in the delivery of this important approach to the processing of disabling traumatic life events. Clinicians and therapists who treat traumatized patients will benefit from a comprehensive understanding of the goals and the treatment components that comprise PE."
