Abstract

The empirical literature on prevention programs for anxiety psychopathology is reviewed. Programs targeting the prevention of nonspecific anxiety psychopathology as well as specific anxiety disorders are critically evaluated in the context of the Institute of Medicine's conceptualization of universal, selected, and indicated prevention. General conclusions embedded within contemporary models of prevention are discussed in order to outline future directions for the area in terms of methodological and conceptual issues.
