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.

"Practicing cognitive therapists (and trainees in particular) will find much to like here. Particularly welcome are the frequent, one-paragraph Clinician Guidelines set apart in boxes throughout the text....The authors also provide a Quick Reference Summary at the end of each chapter in Parts I and II, presenting the high points of interest to the practitioner. Other clinician-friendly features include assessment and monitoring forms, actual interview questions for specific aspects of assessment, and a list of recommended self-help workbooks for patients....Perhaps the most thorough, scholarly, and practical volume on the treatment of anxiety disorders currently available. It is an invaluable addition to the anxiety literature, meeting and exceeding the high standard set by previous works by Dr. Beck and his collaborators. It would behoove all mental health practitioners and clinical researchers to be familiar with its contents."
