The prevalence of fears phobias and anxiety disorders and their relationship with depression in women attending family physicians

, : The prevalence of fears phobias and anxiety disorders and their relationship with depression in women attending family physicians. Behaviour Research & Therapy 26(4): 311-320

An investigation of 437 women, who were attending their family physicians and who had moderately high scores on a self-report scale of depression, indicated high 1-month prevalence of fears, phobias and anxiety disorders. For instance 20.6% reported phobias (i.e. intense fear with some avoidance) and 7.6% reported mild generalized anxiety. More severe forms of these disorders were less common: e.g. 2.3% reported severe phobias with generalized avoidance, and 1% reported intense generalized anxiety. Women with separation or nature fears, separation, social, animal or nature phobias, mild or intense generalized anxiety or panic attacks, whether infrequent or frequent, also showed a greater likelihood of depression when compared with women who did not have the fear, phobia or anxiety disorder. The implications of these findings for clinical and research psychopathologists are discussed.
