The anxiety disorders are both disabling and widespread, but while research into treatment has been vigorous, especially in the past decade, it has been carried out within diverse disciplines and the results have been scattered and hard to use. This text is for clinicians who need both an overview of anxiety disorders and guidelines on their treatment. The authors draw together many vital research findings and describe all empirically founded treatments with a specific focus on these disorders. Cognitive and behavioral strategies are given special attention. Psychotherapeutic approaches are also described and integrated with drug treatments. The book concludes with a synthesis of all therapies for the spectrum of anxiety disorders.
