Late Life Anxiety Disorders & Their Treatment
Approximately six percent of the elderly suffer from anxiety disorders. These include panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorders, acute and post-traumatic stress disorders. Often other mental disorders, such as depression, and medical conditions are co-morbid with anxiety symptoms adding to the complexity of diagnosis and treatment. This volume is a clinical guide for professionals who treat and care for elderly patients involving both medical and nonmedical (cognitive-behavior therapy and other psychotherapies) treatments.
