Triumph Over Fear  combines Jerilyn Ross's firsthand account of  overcoming her own disabling phobia with inspiring case  histories of recovery from other forms of anxiety,  including panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive  disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder; an  post-traumatic stress disorder. State-of-the-art  information is combined with powerful self-help  techniques, together with clear indications of when to seek  additional professional help and/or medication.  Also included is the latest research on anxiety  disorders in children, plus advice for dealing with  family members and  employers.
