Dr. Amen has pioneered the clinical use of brain SPECT imaging in psychiatry. His clinics' signature brain scans have discovered that the illnesses of anxiety and depression are, in large part, the result of brain dysfunction. Scans have also determined that anxiety and depression often occur together, and there are seven distinct types of disorders. HEALING ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION reveals the major anxiety and depression centers of the brain and offers guidelines and tools to determine the specific type of anxiety and depression from which one suffers, and providing a comprehensive program for treating each type. This is a groundbreaking guide to conquering these devastating disorders.
