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.

“An impressive text....The true strength of this book is how focused the editors have been in keeping each chapter concise while still rich in content. That selection truly pays off and the end result is a very concise, yet comprehensive book about etiology, assessment, and treatment of children and adolescents with anxiety disorders. I strongly recommend this book to clinicians and researchers interested in the complex presentation and treatment of pediatric anxiety.”

Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic


“A welcome addition to the literature and will provide an essential reference book for anyone engaged in working with or researching anxiety disorders in young people....A very readable and scholarly book, which would be of great interest to clinicians and researchers as well as students of child development, psychiatry, psychology and other disciplines involved with the understanding and treatment of mental health disorders in children and adolescents.”

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Book Reviews


“The true strength of this book is how focused the editors have been in keeping each chapter concise while still rich in content. That selection truly pays off and the end result is a very concise, yet comprehensive book about etiology, assessment, and treatment of children and adolescents with anxiety disorders. I strongly recommend this book to clinicians and researchers interested in the complex presentation and treatment of pediatric anxiety.”

Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic


“...provides an excellent overview of child anxiety, focusing on treatment issues....meets all criteria for a 'must have' text on child anxiety. The book covers the basics of child anxiety disorders and their treatment comprehensively but concisely, making it seemingly ideal for most audiences, from advanced researchers to beginning graduate students and from master clinicians to starting therapists....highly recommended, including for readers who already own the first edition.”

PsycCRITIQUES


“There’s a reason this book is in its second edition! The first volume, and now the second, contain impressive, scholarly reviews of the various foundations, assessments, and treatments for anxiety disorders in youth. Morris and March have gathered recognized experts to provide up-to-date information in an easy-to-read format and style. A valuable, evidence-oriented resource for professionals and graduate students, this book merits a place on the shelf—or on the desk, since it will be referred to frequently—of any mental health professional working with anxiety disorders in youth.”

—Philip C. Kendall, PhD, ABPP, Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology, Temple University


“This second edition reflects the rapid change in our knowledge of child and adolescent anxiety disorders. Practitioners, students, and instructors will want to immerse themselves completely and dive deeply for the many pearls in every chapter. Particularly valuable for practitioners is the second edition's evidence-based approach to combined medication and psychosocial treatments.”

—John H. Greist, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Wisconsin Medical School
