Abstract

GAD in children is characterized by excessive and uncontrollable worry about a number of events and activities in daily life. GAD is a prevalent and chronic disorder that is highly comorbid with other psychiatric disorders and has a significant affect on a child's life. Reliable and valid methods are available with which to assess childhood anxiety (eg, structured interviews and questionnaires). Furthermore, efficacious treatments for anxious children have emerged, with CBT the treatment of choice.
