Book Description

Updating and reformulating Aaron T. Beck's pioneering cognitive model of anxiety disorders, this book is both authoritative and highly practical. The authors synthesize the latest thinking and empirical data on anxiety treatment and offer step-by-step instruction in cognitive assessment, case formulation, cognitive restructuring, and behavioral intervention. They provide evidence-based mini-manuals for treating the five most common anxiety disorders: panic disorder, social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder. User-friendly features include vivid case examples, concise ""Clinician Guidelines"" that reinforce key points, and over three dozen reproducible handouts and forms.

Reviews

"The authors provide students and practitioners with the strong theoretical base that is a sine qua non for effective treatment. They show how cognition links up with multiple other etiological factors in anxiety and hence can serve well as a treatment target and focus. Marvelous, instructive clinical pearls accompany each theoretical point. An excellent chapter on assessment contains all the necessary rating forms needed for patient evaluation and monitoring of outcomes. Treatment techniques are described in depth; the book concludes with outstanding disorder-specific chapters. The definitive text."--Peter P. Roy-Byrne, MD, Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington School of Medicine at Harborview Medical Center

Clinicians, students, and researchers will find this important work to be of immense value in guiding treatment and research.

"The authors' scientific expertise and clinical experience are evident in this well-written, practical book. It is an excellent contribution to the cognitive therapy literature that will enhance the skills of professionals and trainees, irrespective of theoretical orientation.

White, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Missouri-Saint Louis
