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. This book presents an overview of this condition, including its causes, effects, and detailed descriptions of current treatment approaches.

"Daitch has written an exceptionally clear and multi-faceted consideration of anxiety disorders and their treatment. Her kind tone is matched by her clinical skill, as she engages her intended audience of both therapists and people suffering with anxiety issues. She teaches readers that anxiety has multiple causes and multiple treatments, and liberally sprinkles the text with examples and potential paths to recovery. This really is the guide to go to!" -- Michael D. Yapko, PhD, author of Depression is Contagious and Breaking the Patterns of Depression "This book is a gem. It's a rich compendium of tools, techniques and professional wisdom for both clients who suffer from anxiety disorders and the therapists who treat them. I commend Dr. Daitch for this invaluable resource." -- Assen Alladin, Phd, Adjunct Associate Professor, University of Calgary, and author of Handbook of Cognitive Therapy for Depression and Cognitive Hypnotherapy "[Daitch] guides readers through the maze of varied symptoms and available treatments to the center of what they need, revealing methods that really work to calm panic, ease worry, reduce compulsiveness, and eliminate phobias...will be welcomed by therapists and consumers alike." -- Margaret Wehrenberg, PsyD, author of The Anxious Brain, The 10 Best-Ever Anxiety Management Techniques, and The 10 Best-Ever Depression Managment Techniques
