About

Overview

This title addresses questions about social anxiety vs. shyness or introversion, cultural aspects of anxiety disorders, why some suffer from panic attacks while others do not, what therapy and medications are available, how family and friends can help, and much more, presenting information in a question-and-answer format that makes finding the desired information easy. The book begins with a Guide to Health Literacy section that explains what health literacy is and provides readers with tools to improve their health literacy, and then examines five myths and misconceptions about anxiety and supplies five case studies that provide real-world context and reinforce the concepts discussed in the book. All of the titles in this series are specifically designed to provide readers with authoritative yet accessible answers to their questions in a concise, targeted resource that they can trust to be medically accurate.
