Overview

Anxiety disorders are at once among the most disabling and the most prevalent of psychiatric disorders—more common than either mood or substance use disorders. Often misdiagnosed and undertreated, they account for a staggering one-third of all costs related to psychiatric disorders.

This one-stop resource for both clinicians and researchers details not only the rigorous diagnostic schemas, sophisticated psychobiological models, and effective pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy interventions developed during the past few decades but also the latest advances in research, theory, and clinical knowledge in this diverse field. In this remarkable collection, 77 U.S. and international experts cover the phenomenology, etiology, psychotherapy, and pharmacotherapy of every major anxiety disorder (e.g., generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder [OCD], panic disorder, social phobia, and posttraumatic stress disorder [PTSD]). Sample topics include animal models of fear conditioning, which provide fascinating parallels with clinical phenomena such as PTSD, and functional brain imaging, which demonstrates that pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy for OCD produce similar changes in the brain. The authors also discuss anxiety disorders in relation to children, adolescents, and seniors; different medical settings; substance abuse; and culture and society.

This compendium of studies at the cutting edge of anxiety disorder research and clinical practice will be welcomed by psychiatric and medical clinicians, researchers, and educators as a uniquely valuable reference, and by other mental health care professionals who are interested in the latest developments in understanding and treating these complex disorders.
