Abstract

In this chapter, the authors outline and discuss the cognitive behavioral theory and model of anxiety and anxiety disorders. The authors address the definition of anxiety and anxiety disorders; basic assumptions of the cognitive-behavioral theory of anxiety; the role of predisposing and precipitation factors; a cognitive-behavioral case conceptualization; and common misconceptions about cognitive theory. Where relevant, the authors use clinical research and case examples to illustrate their conceptual points. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved). (chapter)
