The National Institute of Mental  Health calls anxiety disorders the most common mental  health problem in America. They are also among the  most treatable. Yet tens of millions of people  struggle with hidden fears and restricted lives  because they have not received proper diagnosis and  treatment. Triumph Over Fear  combines Jerilyn Ross's firsthand account of  overcoming her own disabling phobia with inspiring case  histories of recovery from other forms of anxiety,  including panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive  disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder; an  post-traumatic stress disorder. State-of-the-art  information is combined with powerful self-help  techniques, together with clear indications of when to seek  additional professional help and/or medication.  Also included is the latest research on anxiety  disorders in children, plus advice for dealing with  family members and  employers.

From Publishers Weekly

01 August 1994 – Ross, president of the Anxiety Disorders Association of America, here eloquently addresses today's ``number one mental health problem''--anxiety disorders--and offers help to the estimated million Americans who suffer from them. A former sufferer of panic attacks and agoraphobia, the author compassionately tells the stories of patients who are inflicted by the five primary types of anxiety disorders--panic disorder, phobias (including agoraphobia and social phobia), obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress syndrome, generalized anxiety--and how they triumphed over their crippling fears and went on to lead normal lives. Especially moving is the story of Grace, who didn't leave her house for 30 years but is now involved in many social activities. Also discussed are anxiety disorders in children, research on the latest therapies, and the value of tranquilizers and antidepressants to facilitate, rather than replace, therapy. Ross presents goal setting, daily task sheets, the ``six-point'' system, breathing control, and relaxation and exercise to manage panic and phobias. Final chapters offer advice on handling family, friends and associates affected by the anxiety sufferer's behavior and on overcoming setbacks. A valuable guide for patients and professionals.
