Recent studies have shown that GAD is a common disorder, affecting between 2%-4% of the USA population. This book presents a comprehensive analysis of the etiology, assessment and treatment of GAD, focusing on an evidence-based cognitive model developed by the authors' clinical research team. The text has sections on treatment efficacy in both individual and group therapy, and clinical strategies for addressing common complicating factors in diagnosis and treatment, such as comorbidity, low client motivation, and issues with medication and managed care. This guidebook provides the practitioner with a practical, evidence-based approach for the successful assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of GAD.
