Reviews and Endorsements

Part I updates and reformulates the influential model of anxiety disorders that Beck and colleagues first proposed in 1985. The authors illuminate the many facets of maladaptive anxiety and the role of cognition in its development and maintenance. Hundreds of empirical studies testing the model's hypotheses are succinctly reviewed.

Building on these foundations, Part II details core clinical strategies that are transdiagnostic in scope-effective and relevant for any type of anxious symptom presentation. This section describes step by step how to conduct thorough assessments, formulate individual cases, and implement cognitive restructuring and behavioral interventions.

Part III delves more closely into specific, frequently encountered disorders: panic disorder, social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Disorder-specific data, conceptualizations, and treatment protocols give the clinician powerful tools for meeting each patient's needs.
