Overview

As clinical and economic pressures mount, mental health professionals increasingly turn to integrated treatment approaches in their quest to improve treatment response. Particularly in the treatment of anxiety disorders, concurrent psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy may offer patients faster, more significant, and more lasting gains. Integrative Treatment of Anxiety Disorders illuminates the process whereby combined modalities can produce synergistic effects.

The book provides an overview of the spectrum of anxiety disorders -- generalized anxiety disorder, social phobia, performance anxiety, panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder -- and reviews their treatment alternatives. The integration of pharmacotherapy with cognitive-behavior psychotherapy is emphasized throughout. Because integrative treatment usually implies a collaborative effort among two or more clinicians, issues of referral management, treatment planning, and collaboration are thoroughly covered. In addition, special attention is devoted to anxiety disorders in specific patient groups -- the pediatric, medically ill, and substance-abusing populations.

In today's health care climate, it behooves clinicians to be knowledgeable about the range of available treatments for a given disorder, not only to help patients participate in an informed-consent process regarding treatment options but also to effectively orchestrate appropriate additive and adjunctive therapy. Toward this end, Integrative Treatment of Anxiety Disorders provides comprehensive guidance for practitioners who work with patients with anxiety disorders.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Ross, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This multiauthored book on the integrative treatment of anxiety disorders is based on the literature review done for an anxiety symposium presented by the same authors.
Purpose: The purpose is to review the treatment of the various anxiety disorders, with emphasis on integration of pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy, especially cognitive-behavioral therapy. It is hoped that such an integrative approach to treatment will improve response time—a worthy goal in this era of managed care and medical cost control. The individual chapters largely succeed in addressing this integrative approach.
Audience: The book targets the audience of mental health clinicians who have a large anxiety disorder patient population. The psychiatrist who currently favors only one treatment modality may find the book particularly useful and enlightening. The authors seem to be credible authorities, and they present up-to-date treatment information, much of which is available from one of the many excellent general textbooks published, although these other texts lack the emphasis on integrative treatment.
Features: The book has very few illustrations, other than outlines of DSM-IV criteria and an occasional table of medication comparisons. The text is easy to read and flows well with pertinent references noted. Both the table of contents and index are well constructed and thorough. Some of the case studies are particularly well conceived and serve to introduce a discussion on integrative treatment.
Assessment: This is a useful book for the mental health clinician, especially the psychiatrist, who treats a significant anxiety disorder population but feels limited by one treatment approach. The book presents each anxiety disorder from a comprehensive perspective, which facilitates a faster treatment response. The information, although current, is nothing revolutionary, and is duplicated in other general psychiatry textbooks. However, its emphasis on integrative treatment does make this a worthwhile purchase in this era of increased accountability for a quick positive medical outcome.
Digest of Neurology and Psychiatry

Although the anxiety disorders are among the most frequently diagnosed mental disorders and contribute extensively to morbidity and dysfunction, they are on the whole very responsive to treatment. This book goes a long way in elucidating treatment options.
