A comprehensive and accessible book on anxiety for clients and therapists alike.
Carolyn Daitch, a seasoned psychologist and award-winning author, has found that clients benefit most when they are active participants in their therapy, and should be knowledgeable about anxiety disorders to facilitate this process. For the benefit of both therapists and clients, Dr. Daitch covers the ins and outs of anxiety disorders including: Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Specific Phobias, Social Anxiety Disorder, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Numerous case examples of those who have sought treatment for these disorders and learned to manage them are peppered throughout the text. For each type of anxiety disorder, she details specific treatment options and techniques, explaining which are best suited to individual use, and which are better done in collaboration with a therapist. Engaging, comprehensive, and reassuring, this is an essential Go-To Guide.
