About Eric Hollander
Anxiety disorders are the most common of all psychiatric illnesses, causing significant functional impairment and distress. Yet, unlike patients with other psychiatric illnesses, patients with anxiety disorders are often quick to respond to proper treatment -- making their treatment gratifying to clinicians.
Concise Guide to Anxiety Disorders runs the gamut of anxiety-related illnesses: panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, social phobia, and specific phobias. The discussion of each disorder includes information on etiology, diagnosis and differential diagnosis, course and prognosis, biological and psychological theories, medications and interventional treatments, psychotherapeutic treatments, and combined treatments.
Strategies and methods are based on findings from an explosion of current research on the subject that has made the long-term outlook for patients with anxiety disorders more optimistic than ever before.
Every clinician who diagnoses and treats patients with anxiety disorders -- including psychiatrists, residents and medical students, psychologists, and mental health professionals -- will find Concise Guide to Anxiety Disorders invaluable for making informed treatment decisions.
