The second edition of Cognitive Behavioral Treatment for Generalized Anxiety Disorder is an essential read for all clinicians, researchers, and anyone who wants to learn about how cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can be applied to treatment for generalized anxiety disorder. Building on the idea that intolerance of uncertainty keeps people with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) stuck in repeated cycles of excessive worry, anxiety, and avoidance, this revised and updated edition lays out the essentials of GAD assessment and diagnosis, step-by-step illustrations of CBT treatment, and questionnaires and monitoring forms that can be used in assessment, treatment, and research. Readers will come away from the book with a clear sense of how to: design powerful, individualized behavioral experiments targeting the fear of uncertainty; help clients discover and re-evaluate their beliefs about the usefulness of worry; encourage clients to view worry-provoking problems as challenges to be met, rather than threats; use written exposure to help clients confront lingering worries and core fears.

Social phobia, or social anxiety disorder, is among the most common (and debilitating) of the anxiety disorders, and at any given time it effects somewhere between 3 and 5% of the US population, with similar statistics found in countries around the world. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been demonstrated to be the most effective form of treatment for social phobia, but research has shown that conventional CBT principles and general interventions fall short of the mark. With this in mind, Hofmann and Otto have composed an organized treatment approach that includes specifically designed interventions to strengthen the relevant CBT strategies. This volume builds upon empirical research to address the psychopathology and heterogeneity of social phobia, creating a series of specific interventions with numerous case examples.

The interactive computer-generated world of virtual reality has been successful in treating phobias and other anxiety-related conditions, in part because of its distinct advantages over traditional in vivo exposure. Yet many clinicians still think of VR technology as it was in the 1990s–bulky, costly, technically difficult–with little knowledge of its evolution toward more modern, evidence-based, practice-friendly treatment. These updates, and their clinical usefulness, are the subject of Advances in Virtual Reality and Anxiety Disorders, a timely guidebook geared toward integrating up-to-date VR methods into everyday practice. Introductory material covers key virtual reality concepts, provides a brief history of VR as used in therapy for anxiety disorders, addresses the concept of presence, and explains the side effects, known as cybersickness, that affect a small percentage of clients. Chapters in the book's main section detail current techniques and review study findings for using VR in the treatment of: · Claustrophobia. · Panic disorder, agoraphobia, and driving phobia. · Acrophobia and aviophobia. · Arachnophobia. · Social phobia. · Generalized anxiety disorder and OCD. · PTSD. · Plus clinical guidelines for establishing a VR clinic. An in-depth framework for effective (and cost-effective) therapeutic innovations for entrenched problems, Advances in Virtual Reality and Anxiety Disorders will find an engaged audience among psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and mental health counselors.eractive

This practical introduction helps trainees use cognitive behavioural therapy to assess and treat generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), one of the most commonly presented client issues. Taking the reader step-by-step through each stage of CBT with anxiety and worry, the authors illustrate the whole range of different treatment techniques whilst keeping the book accessible and concise. Tailored to current High and Low Intensity (IAPT) training, it covers self-help literature as well as traditional one-to-one therapy. The book: - contains illustrative case material, balancing an evidence-based approach with awareness of the realities of today's practice - alerts trainees to the potential complicating factors and the co-existence of other anxiety or mood disorders alongside GAD - addresses cross-cutting professional themes, such as working with morbidity and the pressures of working within NHS settings. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, this book is essential reading for all CBT trainees on IAPT programmes, as well as trainees on postgraduate counselling, psychotherapy and clinical psychology courses. Qualified therapists who require an update in this area will also find this a useful resource.
