Acclaimed as "a tremendous contribution to the field of psychiatry" (Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal), the Textbook of Anxiety Disorders is now available in an expanded second edition. The new edition continues to offer both clinicians and researchers a single-volume resource that covers not only progress in clinical interventions but also the latest advances in theoretical knowledge. Following a comprehensive overview of anxiety disorders, the book provides detailed coverage of seven specific DSM-IV-TR diagnoses: generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), mixed anxiety-depression, panic disorder, social phobia, specific phobias, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Each section covers the latest thinking on symptomatology and pathogenesis, then provides evidence-based clinical recommendations for pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. All chapters have been expanded and fully updated with new research findings. Many chapters have been entirely rewritten by new authors to provide fresh insight into such topics as integrated treatment of anxiety disorders; pharmacotherapy for GAD, OCD, and panic disorder; psychotherapy for OCD and PTSD; anxiety disorders in the elderly; anxiety accompanying substance abuse; and the economic and social costs of anxiety. In addition, new chapters on anxious traits and temperaments, the neuropsychology of anxiety disorders, and anxiety and insomnia enhance this comprehensive edition. Each chapter now includes a concise summary of key clinical points that helps readers put findings into practice -- as well as recommended readings that provide access to essential reports.
Standing at the cutting edge of anxiety disorder research and clinical practice, this authoritative volume deserves a place on the reference shelf of any busy clinician, researcher, or educator. It will be invaluable to all mental health care professionals interested in the latest developments in understanding and treating these complex and costly disorders.
Description: This is the second edition of an excellent, comprehensive, and authoritative textbook of anxiety disorders. Written and edited by internationally recognized experts in the field, this book represents the current state of knowledge in anxiety disorders, covering recent advances in treatment and understanding of these too prevalent disorders.
Purpose: The purpose of this edition is to update readers on the neuroscientific understanding and the latest pharmacological and psychosocial treatments.
Audience: The target audience is primarily psychiatrists in clinical practice. Psychiatry residents, graduate students in psychology, and primary care physicians would find this book invaluable.
Features: The 41 chapters are grouped into 10 parts. Part I lays the groundwork with important fundamental issues such as the history of anxiety disorders, neural circuits, temperament, the neuropsychology of anxiety, cognitive-behavioral concepts, psychodynamic concepts, evolutionary concepts, and combined treatment. Part II is a summary of the literature on the phenomenology, pathogenesis, pharmacotherapy, and psychotherapy of generalized anxiety disorder. In part III, subsyndromal mixed anxiety-depressive states are reviewed. Obsessive-compulsive disorder is thoroughly reviewed in Part IV with superb chapters on phenomenology, pathophysiology, pharmacotherapy, and psychological treatments, and an interesting chapter on obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders. Parts V, VI, VII, and VIII focus on panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobia, and post-traumatic stress disorder respectively. Part IX has very helpful chapters on anxiety in special populations, and part X covers social, cultural, and economic factors in anxiety disorders. The detailed index is quite useful for a book this size.
Assessment: This second edition is an outstanding update on the rapidly advancing understanding of anxiety disorders. Clinicians who treat patients for anxiety disorders should be aware of the information in this excellent book.
