Book Description

Now in a fully revised and updated second edition, this landmark work brings together leading experts to comprehensively examine all aspects of childhood-onset anxiety disorders. The volume presents the major theoretical perspectives currently informing research and clinical practice, reviews key issues in assessment and diagnosis, and marshals the latest findings on each disorder and its treatment. All chapters in the second edition have been extensively rewritten to reflect significant advances in theory and research, including the results of controlled treatment studies. Important new chapters have been added on behavioral genetics, combined cognitive-behavioral therapy and pharmacotherapy, and prevention. Additionally, separate chapters now cover several disorders that were previously addressed in less depth: generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobias, separation anxiety, and panic.

"There’s a reason this book is in its second edition! The first volume, and now the second, contain impressive, scholarly reviews of the various foundations, assessments, and treatments for anxiety disorders in youth. Morris and March have gathered recognized experts to provide up-to-date information in an easy-to-read format and style. A valuable, evidence-oriented resource for professionals and graduate students, this book merits a place on the shelf--or on the desk, since it will be referred to frequently--of any mental health professional working with anxiety disorders in youth."--Philip C. Kendall, PhD, ABPP, Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology, Temple University

"This second edition reflects the rapid change in our knowledge of child and adolescent anxiety disorders. Practitioners, students, and instructors will want to immerse themselves completely and dive deeply for the many pearls in every chapter. Particularly valuable for practitioners is the second edition's evidence-based approach to combined medication and psychosocial treatments."--John H. Greist, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Wisconsin Medical School
