Social anxiety is a widely encountered problem, but there are few resources available to provide straightforward, accessible assessment and treatment information for practitioners. This book aims to fill that gap. Over the past 20 years, effective tools have been developed to identify and treat individuals with social anxiety. The current book provides up-to-date information on the diagnosis, identification, conceptualization, and treatment of social anxiety and social phobia.

“This book fills an important gap in the literature – filled with clinical examples and advice,its straight-forward presentation will allow clinicians with various levels of expertise toimplement these efficacious interventions. [The authors] provide not only a valuabletool for their colleagues, but also hope for the millions who suffer from SAD.”

“A well-organized, reader-friendly guide... As a guide to clinical practice, this book hasmuch to recommend it.”
Lynn Alden, PhD, Professor, Department of Psychology,University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC

“[The authors] are to be congratulated for putting together a concise, practical, eminentlyreadable primer on diagnosis and treatment of SAD. Yes, the advice is evidence-based,but it is also grounded in years of experience treating patients… It is required readingfor any therapist seeking to broaden or sharpen their expertise in this area.”
Murray B. Stein, MD, MPH, Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Department ofFamily and Preventive Medicine, Director, Anxiety & Traumatic Stress DisordersProgram, University of California San Diego, CA

“This is another well-presented, compact volume in the series "Advances in Pschotherapy"... The authors are well-respected authorities in the field of anxiety disorders, and the writing feels authoritative and user-friendly... This book displays an excellent understanding of the troubles encountered by sufferers of social anxiety... It is great to see authors of this calibre devoting serious attention to the most prevalent and arguably the most under-recognized of the anxiety disorders... an informative, cincise and attractive book for the practicing clinician... A readable, attractive, clinically-grounded and useable book, and there exists the definite hope that it may inspire clinicians to attend more closely to and feel more confident with this rather neglected, often hidden, but severely troubled population.”
Richard Scott, Institute fo Psychiatry, King's College London in Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy vol. 37, 2009
