Each volume in this timely series provides essential information on a disease or disorder; presents the controversies surrounding causes, alternative treatments, and other issues; and offers first-person narratives from people coping with the disease. The accessible text is enhanced by color photos, charts, graphs and tables as well as a glossary, chronology, and bibliography.

This volume offers a greater understanding of the symptoms and treatment of anxiety disorders, including their connection with depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Chapters offer perspectives on if and why diseases like social anxiety and post-traumatic stress are being over-, under-, or mis-diagnosed. Personal accounts are presented by people living with agoraphobia, OCD and panic disorder.
