Review

Anxiety in Health Behaviors and Physical Illness provides a comprehensive and thoughtful examination of the relationship between anxiety, medical illness and health behaviors.  It brings together many of the leaders in the field to address multiple aspects of this critical issue, and the result is an important, eminently readable, state of the art text.
-Mark H. Pollack, M.D., Director, Center for Anxiety and Traumatic Stress Disorders, Massachusetts General Hospital and Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA

From the Back Cover

Anxiety in Health Behavior and Physical Illness

Edited by Michael J. Zvolensky, University of Vermont
Jasper A. J. Smits, Southern Methodist University

While the links between physical illness and depression have been well-documented and analyzed, little has been made of the data relating physical illness to anxiety—until now. Anxiety in Health Behavior and Physical Illness explores complex relationships between medical and anxiety pathology on the theoretical, research, and practical fronts. Over forty experts examine reciprocal roles of anxiety and medical illness as causal or exacerbating factors in each other’s onset and development, describe forms of anxiety typical to major disease entities, discuss common health behaviors as they impact anxiety, recast anxiety disorders as chronic illness, and identify patients for whom new forms of treatment may be warranted.

Among the topics covered:

  • Anxiety in the context of specific illness: heart disease, asthma, HIV/AIDS.
  • Self-medication across the anxiety disorders: alcohol, tobacco, illegal drugs.
  • Possible links between anxiety and insomnia.
  • The relationship between puberty and adolescent anxiety.
  • Anxiety, anxiety disorders, and the menstrual cycle.
  • Anxiety disorders and chronic pain.
  • Current and emerging treatments for anxiety disorders, from CBT to exercise-based interventions.

Anxiety in Health Behavior and Physical Illness is a comprehensive resource to be read not only by clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and, other health professionals, but also by researchers and graduate students on the cutting edge of the field.
