In recent years, enormous advances have been made in the understanding and treatment of phobic disorders. This comprehensive volume provides the most extensive, up-to-date information available on the three main types of phobic disorders—panic disorder and agoraphobia, social phobia, and specific phobia. Throughout, the book integrates current research findings with practical recommendations for diagnosis and treatment.

For each of these disorders, clinicians will find state-of-the-art guidelines for assessment, including diagnostic interviews, behavioral assessments, symptom diaries, and standardized self-report. The authors present flexible and detailed treatment protocols for each disorder that include session frequency and duration, sequencing of cognitive and behavioral strategies, bibliotherapy, homework, and monitoring forms for tracking patient progress. Basic principles of exposure-based treatment and social skills training and the most effective cognitive techniques are described, illuminated by sample therapist–patient dialogue and troubleshooting tips. Information on commonly used medications is also included. This is a welcome edition to any mental health practitioner's bookshelf.
