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.

Nodal factors play fundamental roles in induction and patterning of the mesoderm and endoderm in vertebrates, but whether this reflects an ancient role or one that evolved recently in vertebrates is not known. Here, we report that in addition to i...
