An essential resource for anyone providing services for individuals
with somatoform or anxiety disorders Cognitive-behavioral therapy
is now the treatment of choice for individuals with health anxiety
and related problems. The latest research shows that it results in
reductions in health-related worries, reassurance-seeking behavior,
and phobic avoidance, as well as increases in life satisfaction and
everyday functioning. This compact, easy to understand book by
experts Jonathan S. Abramowitz and Autumn E. Braddock opens with an
overview of the diagnostic issues and assessment of health anxiety,
and delineates a research-based conceptual framework for
understanding the development, maintenance, and treatment of this
problem. The focus of the book is a highly practical guide to
implementing treatment, packed with helpful clinical pearls,
therapist-patient dialogues, illustrative case vignettes, and
sample forms and handouts. Readers are equipped with skills for
engaging reluctant patients in treatment and tailoring educational,
cognitive, and behavioral techniques for health-related anxiety.
The book, which also addresses common obstacles in treatment,
represents an essential resource for anyone providing services for
individuals with somatoform or anxiety disorders.
