From the Publisher
This is an excellent book with outstanding contributions by the world's experts on anxiety disorders. If you want to know the state-of-the-art research, theory and treatment approaches for anxiety disorder then you must get this book. CBT for Anxiety Disorders: A Practitioners Book, edited by Gregoris Simos and Stefan G Hofmann, is a book that I will recommend to all of our trainees and a book that I will use often.—Professor Robert L. Leahy, Director, American Institute for Cognitive Therapy, NYC.

The editors have assembled an impressive array of some of the foremost experts in the field of anxiety disorders. This text provides a contemporary perspective of cognitive-behavioral treatment that combines research findings with clinical perspicacity. Each chapter is written in a clear and concise fashion and offers concrete clinical examples, yielding excellent hands on application. This book belongs in the library of any serious researcher or practitioner who works with anxiety disorders.  I highly recommend it.—Frank M. Dattilio, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) has become the gold standard for the psychological treatment of anxiety disorders around the world. But CBT approaches have developed and changed with the times based on new scientific findings and clinical experience, and this very handy and readable reference written by leading international authorities  incorporates all of these changes. Anybody who treats anxiety disorders with CBT will find this book invaluable.—Professor David H. Barlow, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, Boston University

Effective treatments on a sound scientific basis: Anxiety disorders can be overcome, and this book shows the latest developments how to help the patients.—Dr. Winfried Rief, Professor of Psychology and Psychotherapy and Head of the Clinic on Psychological Interventions, University of Marburg, Germany.

I find the book to be an excellent summary of cognitive therapy techniques as applied to problems encountered in clinical practice. It is scientifically and clinically sound, describing not only therapies that in the last decade have become well established, but also newer approaches that are emerging as valuable additions to the therapist’s repertoire.—Walton T. Roth, M.D., Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine.
