A quick-reference, multi-media guide to using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to treat anxiety.

From fundamental skills to more detailed clinical application across a number of different anxiety disorders—including panic, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, OCD, and specific phobias—this concise guide provides a user-friendly overview of CBT for anxiety so any clinician can begin to implement it with their patients. Techniques for early, middle, and end phases of treatment are covered, including goal-setting and collaborative therapeutic engagement with clients, as well as methods for interoceptive exposure, challenging avoidance, and employing the thought record.

Included in this comprehensive guide are a DVD of sample therapy sessions and clinical explication that describe how to implement the protocol, as well as a laminated pocket reminder card. An on-the-go package of practical tools that busy clinicians won’t want to be without.


“I enjoyed this series from two different perspectives: The first perspective is as a professor of counseling who occasionally teaches theory. Students using these books will find them readable, thorough, and applicable to the practice of therapy. New therapists will find them useful to consolidate their own use practice, and they will possibly be introduced to new material. . . . For the experienced practitioner who wants to expand into other modalities, these books introduce a new therapeutic approach. And for those who have only had a quick overview of many theories, this series offers another look, and possibly new material to add to what was already studied. . . . I recommend this series and hope that it will be expanded to include other therapeutic approaches.” — The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter

Psychotherapy Essentials To Go is a truly impressive series of books. Elevating pragmatics over dogma, it is grounded in the wisdom of front-line psychotherapists who adapt the core principles of empirically supported psychotherapies to flexibly address a myriad of clinical issues. No other series of psychotherapy handbooks is as skillfully concise and yet thorough. It will quickly become a standard reference for teaching and enhancing clinical competence.” — Zindel V. Segal, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology in Mood Disorders, University of Toronto–Scarborough; author of The Mindful Way Through Depression

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety by Mark Fefergrad and Peggy M. A. Richter is a concise primer for therapists interested in learning powerful concepts and techniques for the treatment of anxiety. This is an excellent resource for those beginning their training in CBT.” — Robert L. Leahy, PhD, Director, American Institute for Cognitive Therapy; Clinical Professor of Psychology, Weill Cornell Medical College
