Stress-Induced and Fear Circuitry Disorders: Refining the Research Agenda for DSM-V

Overview

This volume summarizes current research to determine whether a specific group of stress-induced and fear-based disorders form a distinct syndrome independent from other anxiety disorders. Intended to contribute to DSM-V revisions regarding classification of these disorders, Stress-Induced and Fear Circuitry Disorders reflects findings that may lead to more refined treatments for these conditions based on a better understanding of the biological and environmental factors that ...

Overview

This volume summarizes current research to determine whether a specific group of stress-induced and fear-based disorders form a distinct syndrome independent from other anxiety disorders. Intended to contribute to DSM-V revisions regarding classification of these disorders, Stress-Induced and Fear Circuitry Disorders reflects findings that may lead to more refined treatments for these conditions based on a better understanding of the biological and environmental factors that contribute to their development.

Thirty international authorities clarify how these disorders develop and what factors contribute to symptomatology. Focusing on posttraumatic stress disorder, panic disorder and agoraphobia, social phobia, and specific phobia, the authors explore the possibility of linking the classification and etiology of these conditions by showing that they may be closely related in terms of brain pathophysiology. Specific coverage ranges from consideration of the disorders among minorities to the effects of stress and psychosocial factors, to the contribution of substance abuse. By offering important new ways of thinking about these disorders, the book not only allows researchers to more accurately assess these diagnostic classifications but also can help clinicians more effectively communicate with patients regarding the nature of their illness and its treatment.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This interesting book summarizes current scientific data on whether post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder and agoraphobia, social phobia, and specific animal/situational phobias constitute a distinct fear-based and stress-induced syndrome. Written and edited by a group of nationally recognized clinician-scientists, this book offers a new conceptualization of these all too frequent and at times disabling disorders and is a welcome contribution to psychiatry.
Purpose: The editors note, "By offering important new ways of thinking about these disorders, the book not only allows researchers to more accurately assess these diagnostic classifications but also can help clinicians more effectively communicate with patients regarding the nature of their illness and its treatment."
Audience: The targeted audience includes researchers and clinicians.
Features: Part 1 describes the four stress-induced and fear circuitry disorders: post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder and agoraphobia, social phobia, and specific animal/situational phobias. The course and classification of anxiety disorders is covered in part 2. Part 3, on special topics, contains chapters on diverse topics such anxiety disorders in African Americans, the genetics of anxiety disorders, anxiety-related cognition, triggers, functional and structural brain imaging, the neurochemistry of anxiety and stress, and substance abuse and anxiety. Each chapter concludes with important and timely references to the scientific literature.
Assessment: Research into the pathophysiology of anxiety disorders is evolving rapidly and this book will give readers a glimpse into important new conceptualizations about these common problems. I highly recommend it.
