In the manual’s introduction, Dr. Carrion discusses the clinical and scholarly foundations that inspired the development of the cue-centered therapy (CCT) protocol for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms. The relationship between trauma and the development of PTSD symptoms is explored through a review of the literature. The consequences and complexities of traumatic experiences are defined, and their prevalence among the general pediatric population is discussed. The myriad of symptoms associated with PTSD, including those newly added to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition, are detailed. A survey of therapeutic strategies used to treat PTSD is presented, and the strengths and weaknesses of specific tools are weighed in contrast to one another. The unique components that distinguish CCT from other treatment protocols are presented, and the full course of CCT treatment is outlined. Instructions on how to use the manual are provided for clinicians.
