Anxiety disorders are the most common and frequently misdiagnosed and undertreated of all mental health conditions. Dealing with Anxiety and Related Disorders: Understanding, Coping, and Prevention explains in accessible language the myths, misunderstandings, and realities of anxiety disorders, including often misdiagnosed somatoform and dissociative disorders.

Psychologist Rudy Nydegger approaches anxiety and related disorders, including panic disorder, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and PTSD, with the most up-to-date and professionally sound information available. The history of and theories about anxiety disorders are thoroughly discussed, as are the most recent ideas and findings. Readers are provided with comprehensive information on each disorder--its description, clinical symptoms, dynamics, and available treatments, including alternative and experimental approaches. Ways in which patients can get help and help themselves are discussed, as are steps family members and friends can take when they know a loved one is struggling with an anxiety disorder. Detailed case studies illustrate both the disorders and the options for treatment.
