Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anxiety disorders are the number-one psychiatric problem in the United States, yet many clients who suffer from anxiety do not get effective counseling, and they often end therapy without successful amelioration of their symptoms. Carolyn Daitch, a seasoned therapist 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, she covers the ins and outs of the anxiety disorders—Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Specific Phobias, Social Anxiety Disorder, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder—and offers numerous case examples of those who have sought treatment for these disorders and learned to manage them. 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.

Book News Annotation:

Arguing that clients benefit the most when they actively participate in their therapy, Daitch, a psychologist and consultant who trains practitioners in the US and abroad, explains anxiety disorders for both therapists and clients. She discusses generalized and social anxiety disorders, panic disorder, specific phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorder and treatment options for self-care and with a therapist, including relaxation techniques, medications, and herbs. She also addresses causes, provides stories of clients as they go through treatment, and discusses the benefits of exercise and diet. She does not cover post-traumatic stress disorder.
