Panic Disorder Assessment and Treatment Through a Wide-Angle Lens
In this age of information overload, it seems that one must move with the speed of light to keep up with new developments in a field. Thus, clinicians and clinical researchers look for one source that succinctly summarizes the most current information. Dattilio and Salas have produced such a book on panic disorder…[Everyone] with an interest in [the topic] will find the information they need in this book.
—David H. Barlow, Ph.D., Professor and Director, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University.
A compendium of treatment approaches to panic…[that allows readers] to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of various interventions.
—Aaron T. Beck, M.D., University Professor of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
Panic disorder is estimated to affect more than 4% of the U.S. population. And the literature on its treatment mirrors that high incidence rate. (The last seven years have produced over 2,500 citations of panic in the professional literature.) Now, in this new one-stop reference, Dattilio and Salas have distilled this wealth of information into a single volume, providing easy access to:
- the latest pharmacological agents,
- tried-and-true cognitive-behavioral techniques,
- and a host of emerging treatments for panic disorder, such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and TFT (Thought Field Therapy).
At the core of this book is the authors’ recognition that “no particular treatment can be all things to all people and, therefore, clinicians must remain open to various treatment options.” Affording rich clinical detail on the different approaches, as well as numerous illustrative vignettes, Panic Disorder provides incomparable access to state-of-the-art treatment strategies and guidance on how to integrate them to effectively meet each client’s distinct treatment needs.
