Library Journal
Nineteen million adults suffer from clinical anxiety like panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Between these two books, we find advice for both those who suffer from these disorders and those who provide support. In Anxiety, Phobias, and Panic, his workbook for the motivated sufferer, professional counselor Peurifoy (Overcoming Anxiety) offers a clear overview of anxiety disorder followed by 15 lesson plans, with activities for combating six forms of anxiety. Medications are mentioned, but the focus is on a program combining behavioral and cognitive therapies. While Peurifoy bridges the gap between theory and therapy in exceptionally lucid prose, there are drawbacks to his approach: the workbook expects a fairly high level of commitment, requesting that one week be spent on each lesson. Also, an evaluation of program effectiveness is not provided. Strauss's Talking to Anxiety is directed to supporters of the anxiety-prone who are puzzled by the disorder's manifestations. An educator who specializes in coaching adults with ADD and other learning disabilities, Strauss (Talking to Depression) provides practical guidance for productive communication with affected individuals. The crux of the book is that "words matter." Common scenarios and conversations with anxious persons are examined, with examples of hurtful as well as helpful things to say. The concerns of children and teenagers are discussed, and a useful list of further resources is provided. Both books are accessible, though Peurifoy's is more technical. Recommended for consumer-oriented mental health collections, where they will complement and update similar works like Edward J. Bourne's The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook.-Antoinette Brinkman, M.L.S., Evansville, IN Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
