Overview

Although the clinical phenomenology of panic disorder and agoraphobia has been part of the literature for over 100 years, panic disorder was not included in DSM until 1980, or in ICD until the recently published 10th revision.

In light of recent developments, the World Psychiatric Association established a Task Force on Panic Anxiety and Its Treatment. This book, a report of that task force, reviews the clinical and epidemiological findings regarding panic anxiety, including • The validity of the diagnostic concepts• the evidence for efficacy and safety of current treatments• the available knowledge regarding current clinical practices in relation to research findings and public health needs, and the implication of these findings for clinical practice and public policy• areas for future research• recommendations for future educational research programs

The World Psychiatric Association, founded in 1961, is an umbrella organization of national psychiatric associations from around the world united in the pursuit of increased knowledge in psychiatry and improvement in the treatment of people with mental illness.

Editorial Reviews

The Psychotherapy Letter
It is a key resource for clinicians working with panic and anxiety patients, as it delineates the clinical and diagnostic features of panic anxiety, panic attacks and panic disorder.
Readings: A Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental Health
This is a comprehensive review of the clinical and epidemiological findings regarding panic anxiety, buttressed by 19 pages of references and 12 of selected readings.
Journal of the British Association of Counseling
It is an extremely useful text for psychiatrists, psychologists, or psychiatric nurses whose training would have prepared them for much of the content.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joseph G. Fanelli, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book is intended to serve as the report by the World Psychiatric Association's Task Force on panic anxiety. It was initially largely written by a single, highly esteemed expert, but it was completed by a group of associates after his death.
Purpose: The stated purpose of the book is to convey the findings of the task force commissioned to assess the epidemiology, nosology, phenomenology, treatment efficacy, current practice, and future research and education needs in the area of panic anxiety.
Audience: The stated audiences for this text are psychiatrists and other mental health professionals. However, the content is rather wide-ranging in terms of the level of discourse, making various portions of the work appropriate for nonpsychiatric physicians, informed lay public, and clinical researchers in addition to the two intended groups.
Features: There are relatively few tables and figures, but those that are present are clear and helpful. In a few cases, tables could have been helpful in clarifying information. Reference quantity and quality is variable. Citations were sometimes lacking, and in general were somewhat dated. The cover art and design of text sections detract from the significance of the work, seeming to trivialize the text.
Assessment: The task assumed by the authors is significant and appropriate, given their qualifications. This kind of work is definitely needed as medicine moves into outcomes assessment and psychiatry moves into medicine. However, the lack of continuity and consistency, perhaps because of the unfortunate passing of the chief author and force behind the project, makes this work fall short of its potential.
