Summary This comprehensive volume provides up-to-date information on the 3 main types of phobic disorder: panic disorder and agoraphobia, social phobia, and specific phobia. The book integrates current research findings with practical recommendations for diagnosis and treatment. For each disorder, clinicians will find guidelines for assessment, including diagnostic interviews, behavioral assessments, symptom diaries, and standardized self-report measures that are highly useful for differential diagnosis and treatment planning. 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. A chapter on the most commonly used medications, side effects, issues related to dosage, and strategies for discontinuing medication is included.
