Anxiety Disorders: A Pocket Guide for Primary Care is designed to help the primary care practitioner recognize, diagnose, and manage anxiety disorders in a busy clinical practice. The first several chapters give an overview of anxiety and the anxiety disorders, and provide the practitioner with practical information and techniques regarding the psychiatric evaluation and mental status examination in a primary care practice. Extremely effective modalities are available for the management of common mental disorders, including the anxiety disorders. The goal of treatment is not simply improvement but remission of symptoms and restoration of function. The Pocket Guide includes helpful chapters on psychopharmacology, psychopharmacotherapy, and psychologic treatment for the anxiety disorders.
