Brocco, Crinno, Hunt, Caroline, Lampe, Lisa, and Page, Andrew. The Treatment of Anxiety Disorders. 2nd edition. Cambridge: Cambridge, University Press, 2003. Print. This group of professors of psychology and clinical psychologist believe that treatment of any form of psychology should include the patient fully comprehending the nature of their disease, as well as addressing the beliefs and fears that cause the anxiety. They define three different types of treatment: psychological, pharmacological, and combination psychological and pharmacological. They feel that the best treatment minimizes the hindrances of anxiety which result in cognitive and physical symptoms of anxiety. I will most likely use this source because it specifically talks about Generalized Anxiety, treatment, and the issues in treating anxiety. It is also a valid source because it was written in the last three years. Castle, David J., Kulkarni, Jayashri, and Abel, Kathryn M., eds. Anxiety Disorders in women Ch.4. Mood and Anxiety Disorders in Women.Cambridge, UK; New York: Cambridge University Press, 2006. Print. This source is written by psychologist looking mainly at the effects of anxiety in women. I only looked at their definitions of each type of disorder because their explanations for treatment were too broad in my opinion. Panic Disorder: Pattern of brief but intense recurrent episodes of fear or discomfort that occur without a notable precipitant (pg. 59). In order to be diagnosed,

Taylor 2 one must have at least four panic attacks in a month or at least one attack with the fear of others. Symptoms associated with panic attacks include palpitations, shortness of breath, nausea, stomach pains, dizziness, hot flashes etc. Generalized anxiety disorders; Defined as excessive worry about a number of events or issues that is difficult to control (pg.64). The worry has to be experienced for a minimum of six months and can be accompanied by restlessness, fatigue, problems concentrating, irritability, muscle tension and sleep disturbance. This book is most likely a credible and useful source. It has been written within the last ten years. I cannot use a lot of the book because it delves into too many aspects of anxiety in women. The book does supply good statistics. Galynker, Igor I. Talking to Families about Mental Illness: What Clinicians Need to Know. New York: W.W. Norton, 2011. Print. 181-186 This source discusses how to talk families through the process of treatment for anxiety in their loved ones. The author who has twenty plus years of clinical experiences breaks down word choice when talking to caregivers. He explains why communication is vital in helping families understand how to take care of their loved ones, while fully understanding the disease. He uses scenarios to propose ways to approach the issue. This source is a good, credible, recent source. I will probably not use this book directly in my papers. It does help me think of another factor in treatment Matthew, Roy J., ed.Ch.13 Anxiety and Sleep.The Biology of Anxiety. New York: Brunner/Mazel, 1982. Print This source is written by psychologist and scientist. They looked at how anxiety affects sleep. Anxiety may intensify or cause insomnia. Anxiety is often seen in occurrence with other psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and depression. The effects of anxiety needs to be

Taylor 3 researched on its own, away from the diseases that it is associated with in order to determine its true effects on sleep in insomnia patients. This source has valid points, but it is outdated so I probably will not use this source. It is a good source for comparison in order to see how far research of anxiety disorders has come. National Institute of Mental Health. Anxiety Disorders. NIH Publication, 2009. Web. 19 September, 2012 Anxiety Disorders discusses six anxiety disorders; panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social phobia (or social anxiety disorder), specific phobias, and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). It explains the symptoms of each disorder, and how research of these disorders help in finding treatment. The book also offers how to obtain treatment, and describes effective treatment plans. The book also offers ways to enhance the treatments. This book is credible because it is written by an institution that researches help across the nation. It is also up to date having been written in the past ten years. The book is written in laymens terms, so its very easy to understand. Nydegger, Rudy V. Dealing with Anxiety and Related Disorders: Understanding, Coping, and Prevention. Santa Barbara, CA: Praeger, 2012. Print. This book is written by a professor of psychology who has a background in various fields of psychology. He also analyzes different, prevalent types of anxiety disorders and his treatment. He tailors his writings to families dealing with loved ones who have anxiety, and those who have anxiety. He includes myths about facts about anxiety to dispel any misplaced worries one may have. He also includes lists of celebrities with different anxiety disorders, as well as personal stories of people struggling with anxiety. This source is a credible source and has been written very recently. It is probably one of the best sources I could use for my paper.
