This is a practical guide to the methodology and application of anxiety management skills. The reader can use it to select the best and most appropriate strategies for each individual client from the variety of approaches that are described and explained. The book is sufficiently detailed to give the reader a basic understanding of the underlying theories, it is therefore useful both for the hard-pressed practitioner who needs a quick reference and for the student who needs a revision tool or study guide. This new edition has been radically revised in both format and content. It is now a multi author text and experts in their subject areas contribute appropriate chapters, many of them new for this edition. These include: a new chapter on assessment and evaluation, a new chapter on working in community settings, and a new chapter on stress management techniques for therapists. One of the book's key strengths is its carefully structured layout. It is attractive and practical and consequently user friendly. The page size is larger than the previous edition and many new line drawings and diagrams support the text and provide suggestions for visual aids for use with client groups. Reflecting the recent moves towards more care in the community, this book provides support workers and carers (and even the partners of those with anxiety related problems) with an invaluable practical resource. For students, it is an accessible text linking theory and practice to give a full understanding of the subject.
