From the PublisherThere are two major treatment approaches for anxiety and itsdisorders: psychological and pharmacological. But for too longthese treatment approaches have been administered like shipspassing in the night with little or no useful information availableon when or why they should be integrated and combined. Now StefanHofmann in a groundbreaking edited volume gives this topic thebroadest and deepest coverage it has yet enjoyed looking at currentevidence and possible mechanisms of action involved in integratingnot only the major compounds such as benzodiazepines and selectiveserotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) with psychologicaltreatments, but also some of the newer compounds such asD-cycloserine and oxytocin. Ending with a road map for the future,this volume should be on the shelf of every clinician and clinicalinvestigator working on the problem of pathological anxiety.

Internationally recognized research psychologist, StefanHofmann, has brought together leading experts on the neuroscience,effectiveness, and clinical use of biological treatments for themajor anxiety disorders. This volume – PsychobiologicalApproaches for Anxiety Disorders – is a seminal bookand a remarkable achievement. Each chapter provides a clear,scholarly review of the research on medications and even the use ofdietary supplements in combination with CBT, or alone. This uniquevolume will become the standard reference for anyone seriouslyinterested in the important question of whether combinationtreatments are helpful and – if they are or are not –why this is the case. A major contribution to the field, I thinkthat all researchers and informed clinicians will want to read thisbook.
