The second book in Oxford's Guidebooks in Clinical Psychology series this book provides practical guidelines on the treatment of anxiety disorders (the second most frequent clinical diagnosis), linking guidelines to empirical evidence.
The authors review the several classifications of anxiety disorders using the latest DSM-IV categories, covering specific phobias, social phobia, panic disorder and agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder, among others. The chapters assess the efficacy of various treatments, and the authors conclude with a discussion of how treatment standards can be implemented in clinical training and practice.
