All About Anxiety: An Introductory Guide to Neuroscience, Assessment, and Intervention
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Short Description:
This book explores the topic of anxiety disorders. Including information on neuroscience, assessment, and intervention.

Long Description:
Anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental health disorders experienced by people in the United States. However, given their complexity, they are also one of the most misunderstood. While these disorders can be quite debilitating, appropriate assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning are critical to the recovery process.

The chapters introduce the reader to a variety of topics. The chapters include introduction to anxiety and the nervous system, building blocks of anxiety, assessing anxiety, and cognitive and behavioral interventions. The chapters were written to build upon one another. Thus, skipping a chapter and jumping ahead can be problematic as the reader may have missed foundational material in the prior chapters.

I would like to acknowledge that as part of this open educational resource product, there were several mental health providers that peer-reviewed these chapters. I would like to extend a deep gratitude for their time, edits, and constructive feedback.
