An up-to-date summary of current knowledge on phobias. The text includes descriptions of the nature of prevalent phobias, treatment of phobias, and a number of theoretical and aetiological factors which are general to a variety of phobic conditions, and are of current theoretical interest.

* A complete summary of current knowledge about phobias, for the academic and clinician

* First comprehensive handbook on the topic for 10 years

* The latest research and findings presented in a single source

* Contributions from eminent international clinicians and researchers

Psychological treatments available for specific phobias have been refined considerably in recent years. This extensive handbook acknowledges these treatments and includes the description and nature of prevalent phobias, details of symptoms, prevalence rates, individual case histories, and a brief review of our knowledge of the aetiology of phobias.

Key knowledge about phobias is brought together in this one critical and accessible handbook, which saves the busy clinician time and provides an authoritative guide to the literature. It is systematically compiled to act as a working tool providing an integrated, contemporary account of prevalent specific phobias, their treatment and theoretical issues concerning aetiology.

The Handbook also reflects the important role of cognitive factors in psychopathology which generate and maintain phobic disorders, a process that is now recognized as important in their understanding and treatment.
