Exploring anxiety

3.4 Reflection

The issues raised previously − the discussion around diagnosis − provide the relevant backdrop for you to explore aetiology and treatments, mindful of the context in which research in these areas will be presented. We will critically examine aspects associated with the aetiology of anxiety in the next section focusing specifically on (i) gender, and (ii) work-related stress as risk factors.
