Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: William Miles, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book provides a comprehensive review of the phenomenonology and treatment of the various anxiety disorders as described in DSM-IV. The first edition of this book was published in 1994.
Purpose: The purpose is to thoroughly review the anxiety disorders as currently understood and classified in DSM-IV. This is certainly a worthwhile objective, as these disorders are among the most common of psychiatric disturbances.
Audience: According to the authors, the book is written for two target audiences — clinicians who treat patients with anxiety disorders and the patients themselves.
Features: The book has a rather interesting format. After two introductory chapters, each anxiety disorder is thoroughly discussed over three chapters. The first chapter describes the anxiety disorder in detail, the second is a clinician guide describing treatment modalities, comorbid conditions, and so forth, and the third is a patient treatment manual designed to be read and used by patients. This unique and helpful design is certainly one of the book's strengths. A thorough reference list is provided at the end, but there is no index.
Assessment: This is a terrific contribution to the field. Its unique structure, designed for both clinician and patient, is a real asset. Because the anxiety disorders are among the most common of psychiatric disturbances, this book should be used by any clinician who treats patients with these syndromes. Educating patients about their condition and involving them in their treatment is an important component in practicing medicine, and this book's design makes this task simpler.
From the Publisher
"This book really provides a unique and informative combination of 'clinician guides' and 'patient treatment manuals' for clinicians who treat anxious patients. This book goes a long way towards increasing awareness of both the art and science of conducting cognitive-behavioural therapy in clinical settings. It is a state-of-the-art, well-written and easy-to-read text for psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and general practitioners who regularly treat anxious patients." S. Seedat, SAMJ Forum

"This is a terrific contribution to the field. Its unique structure, designed for both clinician and patient, is a real asset. Because the anxiety disorders are among the most common of psychiatric disturbances, this book should be used by any clinician who treats patients with these syndromes." William Miles, Doody's Notes

"[A] well referenced resource book and treatment guide..." ADAA Reporter (the Anxiety Disorders Association of America)

"[An] unusual, clearly written book...grounded in an extensive literature..." Bulletin of the Menniger Clinic

"I enjoyed reading this book. It provided clinically relevant information along with an in depth guide to developing a structured treatment plan. This book will appeal to those with an educational background and training in treating mental health disorders in the outpatient setting. The content in the treatment manual is designed for adult patients. However, Anxiety disorders have an early onset and are known to be a common clinical condition in the child and adolescent out-patient population. The treatment manual in this book can be easily modified and adapted to reflect the specific developmental needs of our young patients." - Dr. N. Sundaralingam MB BS FRCPC, Whitby, Ontario
