Anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental health problems in children and adolescents. If symptoms are left untreated, these problems can persist into adulthood and put a child at risk for the development of a variety of mental disorders. In response to the growing awareness of the significance of the problem associated with anxiety in children and adolescents, various intervention programs targeted at this age group have been developed in recent years.Wiley–Blackwell Handbook of the Treatment of Childhood and Adolescent Anxiety presents a collection of readings from leading experts that detail the most effective evidence–based interventions for the treatment of anxiety disorders in children and adolescents. Readings in initial chapters focus on issues relating to epidemiology, comorbidity, course, and risk and protective factors. These are followed by evidence–based interventions for all major types of DSM–IV and DSM–V recognized anxiety disorders, including separation anxiety disorder, social phobia, specific phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder, and PTSD. A final selection of readings addresses pharmacotherapy, prevention programs, and directions for future research.

Comprehensive and authoritative, Handbook of the Treatment of Childhood and Adolescent Anxiety is an essential single–volume resource for state–of–the–art information on effective treatments for anxiety disorders in children and adolescents.
