Neurobiological and psychological approaches to understanding these disorders are presented through the examination of such topics as genetic research, neuroanatomical models, learning theories, and more.
Current issues in classification and assessment are also discussed in depth and treatment approaches, both traditional and alternative, areprovided along with detailed discussions of both pharmacological and psychological approaches.
The handbook also introduces other anxiety-based conditions, such as body dysmorphic disorder, and looks at cultural issues and the impact of anxiety disorders in specific populations.
