Childhood anxiety disorders represent one of the most common psychological disorders found among the general population. They can be serious, distressful, and functionally impairing, so much so that there has been an explosion of interest in their treatment, primarily from pharmacological and cognitive-behavioral perspectives.
Addressing these perspectives is the Second Edition of Child Anxiety Disorders. Beidel and Alfano pay close attention to new pharmacological and psychological interventions as well as multi-center trials that compare single and combined treatment modalities. Additionally, they include new case studies, sections on stability of childhood fears and the longitudinal course of anxiety disorders, and a new chapter on sleep and anxiety disorders. Written on the cusp of newly published information and studies, Child Anxiety Disorders is relevant, informative, and indispensible.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Deborah Beidel and Candice Alfano have provided an important touchstone work regarding a prevalent and often severe problem among youths, the anxiety disorders. The authors provide wonderful case examples and clearly detail aspects of diagnosis, epidemiology, comorbidity, etiology, assessment, treatment, and much more in this state-of-the-art text. Indeed, the book is a ‘must-have’ for mental health and school-based professionals who work with children or adolescents.” - Christopher A. Kearney, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Director of Clinical Training, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, USA

“For those who fret about the challenges of ‘keeping up with the literature,’ this second edition is the answer. All that one needs to know about each of the anxiety disorders of childhood is masterfully and comprehensively covered, with plenty of case examples, along with a wonderful synthesis of the latest breakthroughs in theory and research.” - Wendy K. Silverman, Professor of Psychology, Florida International University, Miami, USA
