The author’s stated purpose for this book (and the preceding edition) was to present the anxiety disorders with an emphasis on clinical relevance and attention to a full range of issues: conceptual, theoretical, etiologic, and therapeutic. The book is organized into 7 chapters; the first is an introduction, and each of the other chapters deals with one of the DSM anxiety disorders. In each of these 6 chapters, there are sections on Key Issues, Clinical Features, Relationship With Other Disorders, Assessment, Epidemiology, Course and Prognosis, Etiology and Pathogenesis, Biological Models, Psychological Models, Pharmacologic Treatment, Psychological Treatment, Combined Treatments, and Outlook for the Future.
