Parent and child anxiety sensitivity: Relationship in a nonclinical sample



Parent and child anxiety sensitivity: Relationship in a nonclinical sample



Journal of Psychopathology and Behavioral Assessment 27(4): 259-268



Little is known about the relationship between parent and child anxiety sensitivity (AS), particularly in nonclinical samples. The present study examined this association in 207 healthy parent-child pairs including 244 children (mean age = 12.3 years, 103 girls) and 226 parent figures (175 mothers). Sequential multiple linear regression revealed that parent AS was significantly associated with child AS in girls, but not in boys.
