Anxiety disorders are prevalent and disbling mental disorders. Although cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is clearly effective, there is still room for improvement. In this volume, the editors recruited a number of noted clinical researchers with extensive experience to contribute chapters covering the state-of-the-art CBT for anxiety disorders, treatment complications encountered when applying these interventions in clinical practice, and strategies for overcoming treatment failures when they are encountered.
