Your readings this week focused on developing a deeper understanding of some actual diagnostic categories. For this week’s discussion, choose two SPECIFIC anxiety disorders from this week’s reading (ideally different from those your classmates have chosen!) and share with us what you see are some important commonalities between them.  Then share at least one issue unique to each of those disorders.  Finally, discuss the single most pressing concern you would have if you had a client with each condition.  

Your post must be a minimum of 400 words long and must meet all other forum requirements as listed below.
