The Treatment of Anxiety Disorders: Clinician's Guide and Patient Manuals
OverviewAnxiety disorders are among the commonest conditions presented to psychiatrists and clinical psychologists, and recent years have seen the development of increasingly specific treatment strategies, using both drugs and cognitive behavioural approaches. Treatment of Anxiety Disorders provides clinicians with an authoritative review of the epidemiology, etiology, and evaluation of anxiety disorders, as well as manuals for conducting a comprehensive and effective cognitive behavioural programme for the common anxiety disorders. Clinicians at all levels of expertise can use the volume in a variety of ways: as an introduction for those new to the field, as a reference, for planning treatments, or for clinical problem-solving. Treatment of Anxiety Disorders offers both a theoretical overview and a framework to help psychiatrists and clinical psychologists, whether experienced or not, build successful treatment programmes.
