Most people with mental health challenges of any kind are burdened by anxiety. In many cases, their anxiety symptoms are what prompt them to seek therapy in the first place. Unfortunately, these people also often have difficulty using standard anxiety treatment protocols, and problems heap upon themselves.

When anxiety is tough to treat, dual conditions may be blocking treatment. This clinical casebook identifies symptoms that may indicate these obstacles, helping mental health professionals recognize conditions that coexist with anxiety—such as autism spectrum disorder, addiction, OCD, and depression. Margaret Wehrenberg breaks down this information into three parts: generalized anxiety, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Each section describes a typical symptom pattern for each, how other disorders may complicate treatment, and examples of successful interventions. The book is organized by profiles of common conditions matched with an anxiety type, including "The Illogical Worrier" (generalized anxiety and OCD) and "The Meltdown Panicker" (panic disorder and autism spectrum disorder). 

Drawing from a career's worth of experience as a therapist supported by scholarly research, Tough-to-Treat Anxiety provides treatment methods for anxiety that resists remission. By highlighting commonly experience difficulties, this book jump starts the therapeutic journey to relief. 

Margaret Wehrenberg, Psy.D., is a licensed psychologist in private practice, a popular public speaker, and international anxiety coach. She is the author of The Anxious Brain, The 10 Best-Ever Anxiety Management Techniques, and The 10 Best-Ever Depression Management Techniques. She lives in St. Charles, Missouri.

Editorial Reviews

Margaret Wehrenberg offers her experience, creativity, and insight to clinicians who are looking to answer the question 'What else might be going on?' with their anxious clients. This book serves as a guide and an opportunity to brainstorm with a compassionate expert. Wehrenberg offers examples, language, and strategies that help us to untangle and understand the avoidance, anger, and rigidity of those whose anxiety is a part of a larger clinical picture. — Lynn Lyons, LICSW, author of Anxious Kids, Anxious Adults: 7 Ways to Stop the Worry Cycle and Raise Courageous & Independent ChildrenThis remarkably accessible and clear volume looks calmly and authoritatively at how to diagnose and treat the most complicated kinds of anxiety. It is thoroughly organized to be detailed and reassuring for the newer clinician and provide a handy reference for a seasoned therapist needing some expert consultation on a really tough case. Finally, we have in one marvelous book a trove of strategies to diagnose, educate, support, and treat our most worried patients. — Martha B. Straus, PhD, Professor of Clinical Psychology, Antioch University
