This groundbreaking book explains the "whats" and "how-tos" of metacognitive therapy (MCT), an innovative form of cognitive-behavioral therapy with a growing empirical evidence base. MCT developer Adrian Wells shows that much psychological distress results from how a person responds to negative thoughts and beliefs—for example, by ruminating or worrying—rather than the content of those thoughts. He presents practical techniques and specific protocols for addressing metacognitive processes to effectively treat generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and major depression. Special features include reproducible treatment plans and assessment and case formulation tools, plus a wealth of illustrative case material.

Social phobia, or social anxiety disorder, is among the most common (and debilitating) of the anxiety disorders, and at any given time it effects somewhere between 3 and 5% of the US population, with similar statistics found in countries around the world. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been demonstrated to be the most effective form of treatment for social phobia, but research has shown that conventional CBT principles and general interventions fall short of the mark. With this in mind, Hofmann and Otto have composed an organized treatment approach that includes specifically designed interventions to strengthen the relevant CBT strategies. This volume builds upon empirical research to address the psychopathology and heterogeneity of social phobia, creating a series of specific interventions with numerous case examples.

Exposure Treatments for Anxiety Disorders is a unique volume, as it draws together the latest research on the rapidly-expanding field of anxiety disorders and illuminates how to correctly apply the proven methodology of behavioral therapy techniques to the variety of situations that face today's mental health professional. That said, cognitive therapy has in the last 10 years gotten increased attention as an alternative to behavior therapy in the treatment of anxiety disorders. But while it is gaining acceptance among practitioners, cognitive therapy has yet to illustrate substantial benefits above those that behavior therapy can already provide. In light of the aforementioned, coupled with the pressure many practitioners feel from managed care paradigms and shrinking healthcare coverage, this book will be a welcome resource allowing for increased clarity of action, accountability, and ultimately, positive client outcome. Each chapter is designed to address pivotal aspects in the assessment, formulation and diagnosis, and treatment of anxiety disorders, to a sufficient depth that the generalist practitioner will be comfortable using this book as a guide when working with the anxiety disordered client.

Recently developed psychosocial treatments for anxiety disorders reflect the systematic influence of scientifically generated knowledge, and these new treatments yield strong results. Research in such areas as information processing, cognition, behavioral avoidance, and the physiological components of anxious arousal has increased our knowledge of mediators that cause and maintain anxiety disorders. The development of these new clinical tools is timely, as epidemiological studies now show that up to 25% of people will experience at least one anxiety disorder in their lifetime. Meanwhile, mental health care providers are increasingly pressured to limit the number of sessions and use demonstrably effective treatments. In this book, the authors review psychosocial treatments for anxiety disorders, focusing on the scientific basis and demonstrated outcomes of the treatments. Cognitive behavioral therapies are highlighted, as they have been the most frequently investigated approaches to treating anxiety disorders. Individual chapters feature specific phobias: social phobia, panic disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder. The book is rich in clinical material and integrates science and clinical practice in an effort to help practitioners to improve the effectiveness of their work with anxious clients.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Entwicklungspsychologie, Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universität Greifswald, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Angst ist ein Gefühlszustand, der gekennzeichnet ist durch negative Emotionen und körperliche Symptome von Anspannung. Der Begriff Angst leitet sich von dem lateinischen Wort „anxius“ ab und definiert einen Zustand von Erregung und Belastung.“ (ESSAU, Cecilia A., 2003) In der Wissenschaft wird die Angst in ihrer Ursache und Wirkung, sowohl gegenwärtig als auch zukunftsorientiert als eine komplexe Erfahrung verstanden. Sie äußert sich körperlich, kognitiv und im Verhalten. Angststörungen bei Kindern und Jugendlichen sind ernstzunehmende Störungen. Es gibt unterschiedliche Risikofaktoren auf der familiären Ebene, der kognitiven Ebene und im Bereich unterschiedlicher Lebensereignisse. Mit Lebensereignissen sind Augenblicke gemeint, in denen das Kind oder der Jugendliche eine extreme negative Erfahrung gemacht hat. Aufgrund dieser unterschiedlichsten Risikofaktoren gilt es als Lehrer, eine Sensibilität für Symptome möglicher Angstreaktionen zu entwickeln. Kinder werden ihre Gefühle je nach Alter direkt oder indirekt beschreiben können. In jedem Fall gilt es, Beobachtungen mit den Eltern bzw. anderen Lehrern abzugleichen und eventuell einen Therapeuten zur Behandlung aufzusuchen. Durch die Klassifikationsmöglichkeiten nach DSM-III und ICD-10 ist es heute möglich, nach einer genauen Diagnose und einer dazu passenden Behandlung weitere Folgen und eine Verfestigung der jeweiligen Angststörung zu verhindern.
