Anxiety disorders are prevalent among nearly 40 million American adults. Financial problems and stress are major contributors of anxiety, followed by fear and uncertainty over the future. Mentally strong individuals cope with such stressors and lead a healthy life. However, chronic anxiety is a serious problem taking a physical and mental toll on the person by causing fatigue, sleep deprivation, and depression. Prolonged anxiety also leads to other severe conditions such as heart disease and diabetes, and makes the person succumb to substance abuse. Anxiety Disorders Sourcebook, First Edition provides an insight about the ways people encounter anxiety and its various types, including general anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and panic disorder. It also provides information about chronic illnesses due to anxiety and ways to overcome it. It also discusses about anxiety in specific populations such as pregnant women, children, older adults, and LGBT community. The book also explains various treatment therapies such as psychotherapy, cognitive processing therapy, and complementary and alternative therapies for the anxiety disorders. Suggestions for coping with anxiety disorders such as caregiver's stress, financial assistance for treatment, and living with anxiety disorders are also included. The book concludes with a glossary of related terms and a directory of mental health organizations for people with anxiety disorders and other mental health concerns. This book is divided into parts and chapters. Parts focus on broad areas of interest. Chapters are devoted to single topics within a part.
