Anxiety Sensitivity: Theory, Research, and Treatment of the Fear of Anxiety

By Steven Taylor | Go to book overview

CONCLUSIONS

People can fear anxiety-related sensations for several reasons. Some people fear them because they misinterpret them as harbingers of imminent physical or mental disaster. Others may fear them because of social evaluation concerns that are not directly linked to genuine catastrophes. Whether the fear of anxiety is narrowly or broadly conceptualized, its importance for the field of psychopathology is undeniable. The remaining chapters in this volume document this assertion.
