In Treating Clients With Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Dr. Michelle G. Craske demonstrates her cognitive–behavioral approach to working with clients with this disorder. Generalized anxiety disorder involves consistent feelings of anxiety, excessive worry, and tension. Typically there is little or no provocation for the client's worry, and there may also be physical symptoms such as muscle aches and fatigue. Cognitive–behavioral therapy focuses on thoughts and actions that might contribute to the anxiety and on helping clients see any negative bias they may have in interpreting information.

In this session, Dr. Craske works with a 56-year-old woman who feels overwhelmed by her workload and worries incessantly about her son. Dr. Craske guides the client through anxiety-producing imagery, introduces strategies for handling her anxiety, and helps the client begin to interpret life events in a more realistic way.
