About this book


Recognition and treatment of psychiatric disorders is a rapidly growing demand for today’s busy primary care practitioners. In Anxiety Disorders: A Pocket Guide for Primary Care, distinguished clinicians combine over a century of experience into concise, practical information and techniques for the diagnosis, evaluation, and effective management of psychiatric disorders. This indispensable resource offers an easy to understand overview of anxiety disorders including adjustment disorder, panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and substance-induced anxiety disorder. The authors examine key somatic complaints and comorbidities that often mask underlying psychiatric problems and illuminate extremely effective treatment modalities in both psychological and pharmacotherapy.

With proper evaluation and management, primary care practitioners will bring greater quality of life to individuals affected by anxiety disorders. Anxiety Disorders: A Pocket Guide for Primary Care is a most-timely resource for diagnosing mental disease, educating patients, and improving treatment outcomes.
