From the Publisher"Holly Hazlett-Stevens has provided clinicians who treat clients with generalized anxiety disorder with a most useful resource. Psychological Approaches to Generalized Anxiety Disorder is a compendium of techniques with which all cognitive-behavioral therapists should be familiar, presented in a step-by-step, easy-to-digest fashion. The beginning clinician will find the detailed description of techniques and the theory underlying their use to be most helpful in helping clients overcome the cognitive, somatic, and behavioral symptoms that make GAD such a complex disorder to treat. The attention devoted to the description of each technique and what to do when application of the techniques does not go as smoothly as one might like was especially helpful. This book provides a long list of options in the treatment of GAD and a roadmap to their administration in an integrated fashion by an empathically-attuned cognitive-behavioral therapist. It will occupy a place of honor on the bookshelves of those of us who treat clients with GAD, and we will be thankful that we have it."

"Holly Hazlett-Stevens has written a very updated and comprehensive book on a highly relevant topic- generalized anxiety disorder, a common but disabilitating disorder.
The book comprises a very thorough presentation of the various current approaches to GAD, with an emphasis on assessment and treatment principles, covering the most relevant treatment strategies for GAD evidenced today. The book is written as a clinicians guide but any clinician and theoretician dealing with anxiety disorder or depression would find this book very useful.
The author has made an impressive and a substantial contribution to this field providing a skillful mix of theory and practice that should be essential reading for all wanting to learn more about this disorder; clinicians, researchers as well as their students. The volume is what many of us have been waiting for, and I highly recommend it."
