Dr. Amen has pioneered the clinical use of brain SPECT imaging in psychiatry. His clinics' signature brain scans have discovered that the illnesses of anxiety and depression are, in large part, the result of brain dysfunction. Scans have also determined that anxiety and depression often occur together, and there are seven distinct types of disorders. HEALING ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION reveals the major anxiety and depression centers of the brain and offers guidelines and tools to determine the specific type of anxiety and depression from which one suffers, and providing a comprehensive program for treating each type. This is a groundbreaking guide to conquering these devastating disorders.

Professional reviews

"An articulate psychiatrist and neuroscience researcher uses brain imaging to group anxiety and depressive disorders into seven clusters, all which "light up" specific parts of the brain when certain conditions or patient mind-states are created. The dry nature of this material is offset by the authors' compassion for their patients and the effort they have put into making their findings useful. With familiar case vignettes, they describe how patients respond to traditional therapy and medication, as well as to a host of alternatives, such as herbs, nutrients, and various other interventions. A well-done audio and an important starting point for lives that are less than they could be because of chronic depression, mood instability, and anxiety. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
