To research issues in psychology, such as a specific disorder, there are several key resources to explore.
Do I need an overview?
Do I need specific information on a diagnosis for a disorder?
Am I interested in finding books -- digital or print?
Do I want scholarly articles or dissertations?
Does my topic include medical or pharmaceutical issues?
Overview? For an overview, consult an encyclopedia, dictionary or an annual review. Try:
International Encyclopedia of Behavioral and Social Sciences (Elsevier)
Dictionary of Psychology (Oxford)
Trying to get a deeper overview of research on a topic?
Annual Reviews in Psychology and Annual Reviews in Clinical Psychology are good starting places -- they provide literature reviews of important and emerging areas of research.
Diagnosis? For diagnostic information, consult the DSM for its current diagnosis. PsychiatryOnline
contains the DSM-IV-TR (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) and several full-text psychiatry journals.
Articles & Dissertations? For scholarly articles, book chapters and dissertations, search:

PILOTS will provide articles on post-traumatic stress disorders.
