"Just another clinical guide to anxiety disorders? Not at all. This broad and clinically nuanced guide is designed for clinicians who want to understand and treat anxiety and fear in all its forms. Rather than approaching the problem from diagnostic categories, this excellent book provides basic guidelines for planning treatment and then helps the clinician design exposures that match the client's specific fear triggers. It explores the challenges and complexities of anxiety treatment and offers clear guidelines and clinical language, to boot. An excellent volume for training students and clinicians at all levels." - Gail Steketee, Boston University School of Social Work, Massachusetts, USA "For the novice or student, the book provides the theoretical and practical building blocks of anxiety treatment. For the more experienced practitioner, each and every chapter sheds new light on the familiar and points to new ideas and novel discoveries. The authors speak with the clarity of their collective decades of clinical and research experience." - Murray B. Stein, University of California, San Diego, USA
