Overview

In this up-to-date volume, comprehensive chapters on the physiology and pharmacology of anxiety are complemented by a detailed discussion of controversial clinical issues, such as diagnosis and drug dependency. The aim is to provide a constructive overview that integrates many of the contradictory elements of the disorder. Anxiety is recognized, for example, as both an unpleasant symptom and an essential drive. It is easy to recognize, but difficult to diagnose. It is specific in origin but exceedingly diffuse in its expression. The book comes at a time of rapid growth in knowledge about anxiety disorders and their treatment. It critically assesses current therapeutic regimes and highlights research that will influence future clinical practice.
