Book description

This Handbook surveys existing descriptive and experimental approaches to the study of anxiety and related disorders, emphasizing the provision of empirically-guided suggestions for treatment. Based upon the findings from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), the chapters collected here highlight contemporary approaches to the classification, presentation, etiology, assessment, and treatment of anxiety and related disorders. The collection also considers a biologically-informed framework for the understanding of mental disorders proposed by the National Institute of Mental Health's Research Domain Criteria (RDoC). The RDoC has begun to create a new kind of taxonomy for mental disorders by bringing the power of modern research approaches in genetics, neuroscience, and behavioral science to the problem of mental illness. The framework is a key focus for this book as an authoritative reference for researchers and clinicians.


‘In this thoroughly up-to-date and stunningly good Handbook, Olatunji - one of the leading authorities in the world - bridges the gap between traditional concepts and newer dimensional transdiagnostic approaches to etiology and treatment. This book should be the principal resource for all scientists and clinicians working with anxiety and related disorders.'

David H. Barlow - Founder, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University

This is a state-of-the-art book, written by leaders in the field, reviewing critical psychological conceptions of the anxiety disorders, OCD, and PTSD. It is an invaluable volume for students, researchers, and practitioners looking for a masterful overview of the anxiety disorders.'

Mark H. Pollack - Grainger Professor and Chairman, Department of Psychiatry, Rush University

‘This publication is likely to become a definitive resource for clinicians and researchers working in the field of anxiety. The authoritative selection of contributors means that each chapter provides a rigorous overview of current knowledge about the aetiology of the conditions covered and a thorough overview of current debates about measurement and differential diagnosis, which include valuable cross-cultural perspectives. Each chapter will also provide front line clinicians with a summary of the most salient treatment issues in order to guide practice. I would recommend this book to anyone working in the field of research and treatment of anxiety disorders.'

Andrew Beck - Consultant Clinical Psychologist, BABCP Scientific Committee member, and author of Transcultural CBT for Anxiety and Depression

‘A simply excellent handbook. All avenues of human anxiety are investigated. Thought provoking and informative. This is a volume to be kept at a clinician's fingertips, as it is certain to be consulted time and again.'

Rhena Branch - University of East Anglia

'This book is edited by an eminent Professor of Psychology at Vanderbilt University in the USA and is aimed at a wide audience of students, psychologists, psychiatrists and other practitioners … it is a state of the art review of anxiety and related disorders which would make an excellent starting point for anyone thinking of doing research in the area.'
