A comprehensive and accessible book on anxiety for clients and therapists alike.

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. Carolyn Daitch, a seasoned therapist and award-winning author, has found that clients benefit most when they are active participants in their therapy, and should be knowledgeable about anxiety disorders to facilitate this process. For the benefit of both therapists and clients, she covers the ins and outs of the anxiety disorders—Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Specific Phobias, Social Anxiety Disorder, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder—and offers numerous case examples of those who have sought treatment for these disorders and learned to manage them. For each type of anxiety disorder, she details specific treatment options and techniques, explaining which are best suited to individual use, and which are better done in collaboration with a therapist. Engaging, comprehensive, and reassuring, this is an essential Go-To Guide.

Carolyn Daitch, Ph.D., is the director of the Center for the Treatment of Anxiety Disorders in Farmington Hills, Michigan. A clinical psychologist, she is a certified and approved consultant and elected Fellow of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis as well a Fellow of the Michigan Psychological Association. A frequent invited speaker around the world, she is internationally recognized for her practical and easy to implement interventions.

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!
