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

By Steven Taylor | Go to book overview

ence anxious responding in both clinical ( Carter, Hollon, Carson, & Shelton, 1995; Rapee, Mattick, & Murrell, 1986; Sanderson, Rapee, & Barlow, 1989) and nonclinical populations ( Schmidt & Telch, 1994; Telch et al., 1996). Evaluation of other dispositional variables (e.g., sex, medical comorbidity), contextual factors (e.g., perceived control), and their interaction with AS may more fully elucidate the relation between psychological parameters and panic.

These longitudinal studies consistently implicate AS in the psychopathogenicity of panic and strongly suggest that AS is a risk factor instead of merely an epiphenomenon of developing panic. Because cognitive behavioral therapy can significantly reduce AS ( Bruce et al., 1995; Schmidt et al., 1997), this offers an exciting possibility for the implementation of a primary prevention intervention that can effectively anticipate and prevent anxiety and panic reactions among high-risk individuals.
