Overview


Each of the adult anxiety disorders (panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder) is presented in a separate chapter of this volume. As the rich description of each disorder is a prerequisite for their recognition, understanding and diagnosis, the book focuses on clinical features, psychopathology and the corresponding conceptual issues. There is also an emphasis of etiological factors, pathogenetic processes, and pharmacological and psychological treatments of each anxiety disorder, as adequate treatment depends crucially on the clinician's understanding of the origins of these conditions and the processes involved in their occurrence.
The volume is guided by a practical need to present the anxiety disorders as they occur and as they are treated in the "real world." As such, this work is intended to be a state-of-the-art reference for clinical practice, aiming to balance and integrate what is currently known about anxiety disorders and their treatment. It contains descriptions of the relevant diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, practical tips, and treatment recommendations for the commonly encountered clinical situations. The book is most useful to psychiatrists, primary care physicians, clinical psychologists, other mental health workers, and physicians in training. It is also of interest to a general audience.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

". . . a remarkably accessible book that conveys a great deal of clinically useful information . . . He uses many tables to underscore key facts and concepts, and he generally omits the kind of esoterica that only specialists find compelling. This gives the reader the gratifying sense that the book was written to edify rather than to dazzle. Its didactic authority is reinforced by the clear impression one gets that the author has the clinical experience to back up his assertions . . . Anxiety disorders are highly prevalent in the general population as well as in general medical practice . . . Accessible as it is, this book deserves wide readership among those who are going to take care of patients with anxiety disorders, and experienced clinicians will find it to be an engaging review."--INew England Journal of Medicine

"Its approach to pharmacologic management is especially useful, as it covers monotherapy as well as the oft-needed combination regimens...offers the advantages of stylistic consistency and readability of a single-author volume but does this with an objective, data-driven approach enhanced by the clinical experience of the author...a practical and highly readable entry point for clinicians."--Psychological Medicine

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steve C. Lee, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book succinctly reviews current clinical thought in psychiatry regarding anxiety disorders.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as a practical, clinical guide to understanding and treating anxiety disorders. The author articulates quite clearly that the goal is to offer more depth than compact clinical guides without overloading the reader with comprehensive textbook-like detail. These objectives are worthy given that such a need exists. However, similar to other books of this scope, readers get the impression at times that they have merely scratched the surface. Fortunately, reference citations abound and serve as a guide to further, in-depth study.
Audience: The author intends to reach psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, mental health workers, primary care physicians, and residents. The content may be somewhat underwhelming for clinicians with years of experience. However, the author does a credible job providing a well written review on the current state of affairs in our understanding of anxiety disorders.
Features: The book is divided into specific diagnostic categories such as panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, etc. Each chapter systematically reviews the clinical features of the disorder, its relationship to other conditions, assessment, epidemiology, course and prognosis, etiology and pathogenesis, and treatment modalities. The review of clinical features is perhaps the book's strongest suit. The discussions on psychotropic medications prove more useful than those on psychotherapeutic measures. In the latter case, one is better served reading materials solely devoted to psychotherapy techniques.
Assessment: The book has enough clinically relevant material and is written clearly enough that I will reference it in the future.
