multiple facets rather than a single construct. Some facets (e.g., fear of cognitive dyscontrol) may be more important for particular disorders (e.g., PTSD, OCD, major depression).

Many questions remain unanswered (e.g., subjective meaning and origins of AS); the intriguing story of AS is far from complete.
