Overview

A comprehensive and accessible book on anxiety for clients and therapists alike.
Anxiety disorders are the number-one psychiatric problem in the United States, yet many clients who suffer from anxiety do not get effective counseling, and they often end therapy without successful amelioration of their symptoms. Carolyn Daitch, a seasoned therapist and award-winning author, has found that clients benefit most when they are active participants in their therapy, and should be knowledgeable about anxiety disorders to facilitate this process. For the benefit of both therapists and clients, she covers the ins and outs of the anxiety disorders—Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Specific Phobias, Social Anxiety Disorder, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder—and offers numerous case examples of those who have sought treatment for these disorders and learned to manage them. For each type of anxiety disorder, she details specific treatment options and techniques, explaining which are best suited to individual use, and which are better done in collaboration with a therapist. Engaging, comprehensive, and reassuring, this is an essential Go-To Guide.

Editorial Reviews

Michael D. Yapko
“Daitch has written an exceptionally clear and multi-faceted consideration of anxiety disorders and their treatment. Her kind tone is matched by her clinical skill, as she engages her intended audience of both therapists and people suffering with anxiety issues. She teaches readers that anxiety has multiple causes and multiple treatments, and liberally sprinkles the text with examples and potential paths to recovery. This really is the guide to go to!”
Margaret Wehrenberg
“[Daitch] guides readers through the maze of varied symptoms and available treatments to the center of what they need, revealing methods that really work to calm panic, ease worry, reduce compulsiveness, and eliminate phobias....will be welcomed by therapists and consumers alike.”
Assen Alladin
“This book is a gem. It’s a rich compendium of tools, techniques and professional wisdom for both clients who suffer from anxiety disorders and the therapists who treat them. I commend Dr. Daitch for this invaluable resource.”
