Abstract

Abstract This report provides an overview of the status of child and adolescent anxiety disorders. General biological and theoretical concepts of anxiety are reviewed, as are current diagnostic systems. We then examine developmental, epidemiologic, and clinical data, as they add to our understanding of child and adolescent anxiety disorders. A brief discussion of the assessment and treatment of childhood anxiety is also included. Some areas of future research are identified.
