Anxiety is the number one mental health problem facing young people today. Childhood should be a happy and carefree time, yet more and more children today are exhibiting symptoms of anxiety, from bedwetting and clinginess to frequent stomach aches, nightmares, and even refusing to go to school.

No child is immune from the effects of stress in today’s media-saturated society. Fortunately, anxiety disorders are treatable. By following these simple solutions, parents can prevent their children from needlessly suffering today—and tomorrow. www.broadwaybooks.com From the Trade Paperback edition.
Childhood anxiety disorders represent one of the most common psychological disorders found among the general population. They can be serious, distressful, and functionally impairing, so much so that there has been an explosion of interest in their treatment, primarily from pharmacological and cognitive-behavioral perspectives. Addressing these perspectives is the Second Edition of Child Anxiety Disorders. Beidel and Alfano pay close attention to new pharmacological and psychological interventions as well as multi-center trials that compare single and combined treatment modalities. Additionally, they include new case studies, sections on stability of childhood fears and the longitudinal course of anxiety disorders, and a new chapter on sleep and anxiety disorders. Written on the cusp of newly published information and studies, Child Anxiety Disorders is relevant, informative, and indispensible.
An international team of psychiatrists and psychologists review the most recent developments in the treatment and assessment of anxiety disorders in the young.

Now in a fully revised and updated second edition, this landmark work brings together leading experts to comprehensively examine all aspects of childhood-onset anxiety disorders. The volume presents the major theoretical perspectives currently informing research and clinical practice, reviews key issues in assessment and diagnosis, and marshals the latest findings on each disorder and its treatment. All chapters in the second edition have been extensively rewritten to reflect significant advances in theory and research, including the results of controlled treatment studies. Important new chapters have been added on behavioral genetics, combined cognitive-behavioral therapy and pharmacotherapy, and prevention. Additionally, separate chapters now cover several disorders that were previously addressed in less depth: generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobias, separation anxiety, and panic.
Over the last decade, there has been considerable progress in the recognition and treatment of anxiety across the lifespan. Researchers now believe that the childhood-onset anxiety syndromes foreshadow adult anxiety disorders. This belief, coupled with the advent of DSM-IV, which introduces classification refinements that more closely align childhood and adult disorders, provides the impetus for Anxiety Disorders in Children and Adolescents - the most comprehensive volume available on anxiety disorders in young people. Rich with state-of-the-art coverage of anxiety disorders in children and adolescents, this all-inclusive volume is an ideal resource for clinicians and clinical researchers alike. Written in an accessible style, it also serves as a reference and text for students at all levels of training.

Anxiety in Children and Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder: Evidence-Based Assessment and Treatment begins with a general overview of the history of research on anxiety in ASD and the path towards evidence-based assessment and treatment methods. Thereafter, chapters focus on the nature of ASD and anxiety comorbidity, the assessment of anxiety in ASD, and its treatment. Later chapters are devoted to future directions for research on this topic, including a discussion of anxiety assessment and treatment for adults and minimally verbal individuals. Anxiety disorders in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can cause substantial distress and impairment over and above that caused by ASD alone. Emerging research on genetic, psychological, psychophysiological, and psychometric aspects of ASD establish anxiety as a valid and necessary treatment target in this population. This book is designed to help a broad array of providers who work with children with ASD understand cutting-edge, empirically supported treatments for anxiety, including specific treatment plans and strategies. Presents a balanced discussion of the scientific literature on anxiety in ASD Provides a pragmatic, clinically applied focus that gives readers a ‘how-to’ guide for the treatment of anxiety in ASD Considers the distinct ways in which anxiety presents in children and adolescents with ASD and the challenges this presents to assessment and treatment Examines emerging areas of anxiety assessment and treatment research in ASD
