Anxiety disorders are among the most prevalent mental health problems in childhood. In this timely book, an international team of psychiatrists and psychologists review the most recent theoretical and empirical developments in the field and indicate how these may inform research and clinical practice. Coverage ranges across cognitive, physiological, neurobiological, developmental, pharmacological and environmental issues. For clinicians and researchers this is an authoritative guide to the understanding and assessment of anxiety disorders in the young, and will appeal to all mental health professionals involved with this age group.
