Overview

Panic disorder is a remarkably common psychological condition, characterised by sudden attacks of intense fear and panic. Approximately 3% of the population will experience some signs of panic disorder during their lifetime. It is a very distressing condition, and if it persists, has an adverse effect on most aspects of the person's life.

This new edition of Panic Disorder: The Facts includes valuable new information on treatment and discusses the relationship between panic disorder and other anxiety conditions. It also assesses the evidence for the available treatments, drawing from the latest scientific research. Information on self-help has also been revised. Up-to-date information on the nature, symptoms, causes, theories and treatment of panic disorder is provided, an in non-technical language. The chapters on treatment give a detailed account of psychological therapy and also discuss drug treatment. A final chapter answers some commonly asked questions. Numerous personal accounts are given throughout the book, highlighting various aspects of panic disorder and its treatment.

Though mainly intended for sufferers of panic disorder, and their families and friends, it will also be of interest to the general reader, and to health care workers who have to deal with this problem.

Clearly written by two leading experts, the book will remain a valuable source of information for anyone affected by this disorder.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jeffrey Rado, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book provides an accessible review, written by knowledgeable authors, of the symptoms, epidemiology, risk factors, and treatment options of panic disorder. This book updates the first edition published m 1996.
Purpose: The purpose is to explain the causes, symptoms and treatment of panic disorder, using a clear writing style that is accessible to the lay public.
Audience: The book is intended for sufferers of panic disorder, their families and their healthcare providers. It is accessible to all knowledge levels and backgrounds. Some readers with an extensive background in psychiatry may find it rather basic.
Features: The authors detail, in a clear and concise manner, the clinical experience of panic. A nice overview is given of various clinical scenarios. Etiology is discussed, but the biological theories are not expanded upon in any great detail. Extra attention is spent on cognitive behavioral therapy, setting up psychotherapy, and the use of assessment methods. Fewer pages are devoted to pharmacotherapy. Multiple case vignettes are nicely deployed to illustrate concepts.
Assessment: This guide is very easy to read and provides the basics about panic disorder for the novice reader. It is a great starting point for learning more about a fairly common disorder. Practicing psychiatrists may find little new information in this edition, however. Rather, this would be a book clinicians can recommend to their patients who want to learn more about their illness.
