MEDIA REVIEWS

"Exposure Therapy for Anxiety is an essential part of any clinician's library. The expert authors--renowned for both their contributions to theory and research and their outstanding clinical knowledge and acumen--provide practical advice on how to bring an empirically driven model to bear on the unique problems of the individual in your office. Full of excellent clinical examples, illustrations, and anecdotes, the book models how to execute exposure-based interventions effectively. It explicates the methods concisely and authoritatively and presents elegant solutions to complex difficulties that can arise in using exposure. This book brings science and practice into harmony."--Christine Purdon, PhD, CPsych, Department of Psychology, University of Waterloo, Canada

"Abramowitz, Deacon, and Whiteside have produced the definitive book on contemporary exposure-based treatment for pathological anxiety. This comprehensive volume is clear, practical, and based on the best available research. Practitioners who work with anxious individuals will find this book invaluable, and it should be required reading for students and trainees in cognitive-behavioral therapy."--Martin M. Antony, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada

"For the novice or student, the book provides the theoretical and practical building blocks of anxiety treatment. For the more experienced practitioner, each and every chapter sheds new light on the familiar and points to new ideas and novel discoveries. The authors speak with the clarity of their collective decades of clinical and research experience."--Murray B. Stein, MD, MPH, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego

"Just another clinical guide to anxiety disorders? Not at all. This broad and clinically nuanced guide is designed for clinicians who want to understand and treat anxiety and fear in all its forms. Rather than approaching the problem from diagnostic categories, this excellent book provides basic guidelines for planning treatment and then helps the clinician design exposures that match the client's specific fear triggers. It explores the challenges and complexities of anxiety treatment and offers clear guidelines and clinical language, to boot. An excellent volume for training students and clinicians at all levels."--Gail Steketee, PhD, Dean and Professor, Boston University School of Social Work


"A comprehensive manual for clinicians detailing the application of exposure therapy in the treatment of a broad range of anxiety problems. The topic is timely, and the book significantly augments the effort to disseminate exposure-based treatments. ... The book serves not only as an evidence-based account of the model and rationale behind exposure therapy, but also as an aid to individualizing treatment according to patient nuances, whether overt or subtle. Written by experts in the field of anxiety, Exposure Therapy for Anxiety is a complete guide to exposure therapy. ... The authors do an excellent job of discussing thorny clinical issues, including the 'judicious' use of safety behaviors and distraction during exposure therapy. ... An invaluable source of reference for any clinician, regardless of experience level." - Michelle Davis and Mark Powers, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Vol. 40, No. 4, 2011, UK

Carr, Vol. 56, No. 50, December 14, 2011)
