About this book

Anxiety and related disorders are common conditions that disproportionately affect women. In this book, the epidemiology, psychobiology, diagnosis, evaluation, pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy of major anxiety and related disorders are examined with special reference to the effects of gender and sex on clinical presentation and treatment. The conditions considered include generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder and social anxiety disorder. In addition, the management of anxiety and related disorders during pregnancy and lactation are discussed. Two concluding chapters specifically address anxiety disorders in women and in men, summarizing key points for clinicians and researchers. The authors are leading clinicians, including both psychiatrists and psychologists, from around the globe.

Reviews

“This comprehensive book thoughtfully describes several variations of anxiety disorders and the gender and sex specific factors related to anxiety disorders. … This book is appropriate for any clinicians with the interest, training, and expertise to care for those diagnosed with anxiety disorders. It also serves as a valuable resource for anyone hoping to understand the different models and dimensions of anxiety disorders. … serves as an authoritative resource for understanding the interplay of these disorders with sex and gender.” (Sheila Lahijani, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2015)
