Anxiety: Theory, Research, and Intervention in Clinical and Health Psychology
Dealing with anxiety in relation to both mental and physical health, this book goes beyond the anxiety disorders which frequently form the focus of research and writing in clinical texts. It explores anxiety as a factor influencing psychosexual dysfunctions, physical symptom presentation, the onset and course of disease and the process of post-operative recovery. The author has provided a consistent framework to the book in order to facilitate accessibility of information. Each chapter is thus organized to reflect theory, assessment and therapy outcome.
