Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia E. Murphy, PhD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This edited book provides chapters on categories of anxiety disorders specified in the DSM-IV-TR. Each chapter follows the same outline of phenomenology, assessment, pathogenesis, pharmacotherapy, and psychotherapy.
Purpose: The information appears to address the need for educating clinicians in the appreciation of the various diagnostic categories of anxiety versus the broader description in DSM-III and DSM-II. With the importance of accurate diagnosis in order to choose appropriate treatment, each chapter includes help in differential diagnosis and assessing comorbidities.
Audience: The inclusion of pharmacotherapy suggests the primary audience is psychiatrists. Other mental health providers or students might also find the book useful.
Features: The manual provides fuller information than is possible in the DSM-IV. Most information in the book is research based. The section on neurochemistry and neurobiology are particularly valuable. Treatment discussions provide reviews of outcome studies both for pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy.
Assessment: The format of the book makes it quite useful. The major drawback of the book is the use of research that is getting old. The most recent reference I could find was 2002, and most citations are for work done in the early to late 1990s.
