In The Prevention of Anxiety and Depression, editors David J. A. Dozois and Keith S. Dobson demonstrate that prevention efforts are warranted in addressing the two most common mental health ailments. Leading experts examine current models and practices in prevention and the empirical evidence on risk and vulnerability for anxiety and depression separately and as co-morbid disorders. Authors survey the emerging support for intervention efforts at various stages. From this comprehensive and cutting edge literature, the editors synthesize a set of innovative recommendations for theory development and research.
