About this work


"Research into the anxiety disorders has advanced rapidly in the past decade, with significant implications for understanding and treating these prevalent and distressing problems.

This timely volume brings together prominent authorities to provide a lucid, clinician-friendly overview of current developments in the field. Grounded in emotional processing theory and the seminal work of Edna B. Foa, the book presents ideas and treatment strategies that can be readily incorporated into practice.

It also points toward important next steps for clinical research and the dissemination of empirically based interventions."--Jacket.
