Acclaimed as "a tremendous contribution to the field of psychiatry" (Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal), the Textbook of Anxiety Disorders is now available in an expanded second edition. The new edition continues to offer both clinicians and researchers a single-volume resource that covers not only progress in clinical interventions but also the latest advances in theoretical knowledge. Following a comprehensive overview of anxiety disorders, the book provides detailed coverage of seven specific DSM-IV-TR diagnoses: generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), mixed anxiety-depression, panic disorder, social phobia, specific phobias, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Each section covers the latest thinking on symptomatology and pathogenesis, then provides evidence-based clinical recommendations for pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. All chapters have been expanded and fully updated with new research findings. Many chapters have been entirely rewritten by new authors to provide fresh insight into such topics as integrated treatment of anxiety disorders; pharmacotherapy for GAD, OCD, and panic disorder; psychotherapy for OCD and PTSD; anxiety disorders in the elderly; anxiety accompanying substance abuse; and the economic and social costs of anxiety. In addition, new chapters on anxious traits and temperaments, the neuropsychology of anxiety disorders, and anxiety and insomnia enhance this comprehensive edition. Each chapter now includes a concise summary of key clinical points that helps readers put findings into practice -- as well as recommended readings that provide access to essential reports.
Standing at the cutting edge of anxiety disorder research and clinical practice, this authoritative volume deserves a place on the reference shelf of any busy clinician, researcher, or educator. It will be invaluable to all mental health care professionals interested in the latest developments in understanding and treating these complex and costly disorders.
