Updating and elaborating on Aaron T. Beck's pioneering cognitive model of anxiety disorders, this groundbreaking work is both authoritative and highly practical. The authors synthesize the latest thinking and empirical data on anxiety treatment and offer step-by-step instruction in cognitive assessment, case formulation, cognitive restructuring, and behavioral intervention. They provide evidence-based mini-manuals for treating the five most common anxiety disorders: panic disorder, social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder. User-friendly features include vivid case examples, concise ''Clinician Guidelines'' that reinforce key points, and over three dozen reproducible handouts and forms.

''Clark and Beck have produced a landmark work. Scholarly and clinically rich, the book presents the contemporary status of the cognitive model of anxiety disorders with great clarity. It provides a comprehensive yet easy-to-read summary of the empirical literature and describes concrete clinical techniques for addressing some of the most common psychiatric problems. Essential reading for current and future mental health professionals.''—Stefan G. Hofmann, PhD, Department of Psychology, Boston University

''The authors provide students and practitioners with the strong theoretical base that is a sine qua non for effective treatment. They show how cognition links up with multiple other etiological factors in anxiety and hence can serve well as a treatment target and focus. Marvelous, instructive clinical pearls accompany each theoretical point. An excellent chapter on assessment contains all the necessary rating forms needed for patient evaluation and monitoring of outcomes. Treatment techniques are described in depth; the book concludes with outstanding disorder-specific chapters. The definitive text.''—Peter P. Roy-Byrne, MD, Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington School of Medicine at Harborview Medical Center

''From a clinician's perspective, this work contains a wealth of useful information. It will become the gold standard for the assessment and treatment of anxiety....This book has a niche of its own as a reference of the highest caliber. It is a volume that will withstand the test of time.''—PsycCRITIQUES

''The authors' scientific expertise and clinical experience are evident in this well-written, practical book. It is an excellent contribution to the cognitive therapy literature that will enhance the skills of professionals and trainees, irrespective of theoretical orientation. Detailed case examples illustrate the application of cognitive therapy principles and practices for treating each of the anxiety disorders.''—Kamila S. White, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Missouri–Saint Louis

''Exceptional. In this comprehensive and integrative work, Clark and Beck offer their latest insights in treating anxiety disorders and provide specific conceptual frameworks....Included are a wealth of practical assessment and monitoring tools that can be used effectively with clients. The book will also be valuable as a course text in clinical psychology training programs.''
