This omnibus chapter covers anxiety disorders and other psychiatric disorders that may arise or be aggravated by the pandemic. Some anxiety is of course warranted in the midst of a crisis of ongoing risk and uncertainty; therapist and patient must try to separate appropriate from symptomatic anxiety. The chapter includes a discussion of prior IPT research for these disorders, appropriate IPT adaptations, and extended, detailed case examples illustrating the application of IPT to panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and social anxiety disorder. It also addresses how the pandemic may trigger or exacerbate other diagnoses for which IPT has shown benefit.
