Although most contributors recognize the potential for trauma to produce PTSD, a few perceive demons in the "medical model" of PTSD, in the DSM-III addition of PTSD as a diagnosis, and in attorneys seeking gain from the "golden wound." Some readers will find this hostility off-putting. However, despite the doctrinaire approach of the opening chapter, eclecticism-creep is apparent throughout. For example, one can find descriptions of the psychological processes and phases of adjustment to trauma that would please any psychodynamicist. It is heartening to read behavioral scientists writing about resilience, courage, meaning, and the symbolic dimensions of suffering—mainstays in the therapy of traumatized people who seek psychiatric care.
