Description

Anxiety disorders are among the most prevalent mental health problems in childhood and adolescence. This fully revised new edition is an authoritative guide to the understanding and assessment of anxiety disorders in the young. The first section covers historical and conceptual issues, including cognitive and developmental processes, clinical and theoretical models, phenomenology and classification, and evidence-based assessment. Subsequent sections cover the biology of child and adolescent anxiety, and environmental influences including traumatic events, parenting and the impact of the peer group. The final section addresses prevention and treatment of anxiety. All chapters incorporate new advances in the field, explicitly differentiate between children and adolescents, and incorporate a developmental perspective. Written and edited by an international team of leading experts in the field, this is a key text for researchers, practitioners, students and clinical trainees with interests in child and adolescent anxiety.

Review quote

'This is an excellent volume in the Cambridge Child and Adolescent Psychiatry series ... carefully planned and edited ... this is an important book for educational psychologists who want to know more about helping anxious children and their teachers and parents. It would be an excellent text for shared reading and discussion.' Educational Psychology in Practice 'Behavioural cognitively-oriented theories and clinical research are featured most strongly ... full discussion of well-researched possible temperamental precursors as seen in young children with 'behavioural inhibition' ... good update on post-traumatic stress disorder ... well-informed neuropsychiatry chapter ...' Elena Garraldo, Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry 'An excellent reference on anxiety disorders in youth, this second edition documents the many advances that have been made in our understanding of and treatment for anxiety in youth. The authors, an impressive and representative sample of experts from across the globe, provide current information and updates from the first edition that appeared 10 years earlier. Even experienced scholars will learn from the coverage of diverse topics including historic and conceptual issues, normal and epidemiological developments, biological forces and environmental factors, and prevention and treatment. The work is well-informed, easy to read, and rich with research and applied suggestions and recommendations.' Philip C. Kendall, Distinguished University Professor and Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology, Temple University '... an excellent and comprehensive book ... even seasoned anxiety researchers will come away learning a significant amount.' Psychological Medicine
