Overview


Generalized Anxiety Disorder occurs in approximately 4% of the population and is characterized by excessive uncontrollable worry about everyday things. The constant worry can be extremely impairing if left untreated, even to the point of causing physical symptoms.

Written by the developers of an empirically supported and effective cognitive-behavioral therapy program for treating GAD, this second edition therapist guide includes all the information and materials necessary to implement a successful treatment protocol. The therapeutic technique described in this book is research-based with a proven success rate when used in both individual and group formats, as well as with clients currently taking medication.
Designed to be used in conjunction with its corresponding workbook, this therapist guide outlines a 10-session program comprised of four primary treatment modules including, cognitive restructuring, progressive muscle relaxation, worry exposures, and in vivo exposure exercises. New features to this edition include expanded chapters that provide detailed instructions for conducting each session, session outlines, and recommended homework assignments. This user-friendly guide is a dependable resource that no clinician can do without!
