About the Authors
  • This comprehensive text covers all the anxiety disorders found in the latest DSM and ICD classifications. Written by two internationally recognized authorities in the field, it provides detailed information about seven principal disorders, including anxiety in the medically ill. For each disorder, the book covers diagnostic criteria, epidemiology, etiology and pathogenesis, clinical features, natural history, and differential diagnosis; and describes treatment approaches, both psychological and pharmacological. The authors have thoroughly surveyed the scientific literature of the past two decades, and have added insights from history, philosophy, and the arts. At once scholarly and clinically relevant, this is a definitive reference for psychiatrists at all levels. It will also be of interest to other mental health professionals, and to many physicians in other specialties.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "It nicely includes diagnostic criteria tables for each DSM-IV anxiety disorder, as well as other supporting data and illustrations...a useful resource to the clinician generally unfamiliar with current literature on anxiety disorders who need a concise, clinically-oriented reference." Jeffrey S. Ross, MD, Doody Publishing, Inc.

    "This comprehensive text describes the development of diagnostic criteria and discovery of effective treatments. The principal anxiety disorders are covered in well-organized separate chapters...Therapists working with anxiety disorders will find this book a valuable addition to their library." Raeann Dumont, Readings

    Anxiety Disorders is very authoritative and aimed at the specific user group of practicing psychiatrists, yet is also quite readable and probably accessible to a knowledgeable lay user for general information. In spite of its necessarily clinical nature, it offers a recurring touch of personality...The combination of utility, authority, and personality make Anxiety Disorders a valuable tool for all psychiatrists and other mental health professionals. It is recommended for purchase by individual practitioners and by medical and academic libraries." E-Streams
