Summary
"Traditionally, the study of anxiety and anxiety disorders has focused on intrapersonal factors. Although exceptions can be found, these theories have traditionally emphasized factors within the individual, leaving open to question the role of interpersonal factors in the genesis and maintenance of anxiety. Yet those of us who treat and conduct research with anxious individuals know that their interpersonal world is shaped in part by the nature of their symptoms and vice versa. How can we begin to reconcile our research and clinical experiences with our current theoretical accounts to develop a thorough and accurate understanding of interpersonal processes in the anxiety disorders? This volume is a beginning step toward answering this question. In organizing this book, it was important to first provide an overview of conceptual and assessment tools in Section I. Chapter 1 orients the reader to models for understanding interpersonal influences on anxiety disorders. In particular, one must begin to include reciprocal, bidirectional influences between the anxiety-disordered individual and friends, family, and romantic partners into any interpersonally based conceptual model. Although social influences may constitute part of the psychopathology of a given anxiety disorder (as is the case with social anxiety disorder), this is not always the case. Thus, Chapter 1 provides an overview of current theoretical approaches to conceptualizing interpersonal processes, with a review of models that allow flexibility in conceptualizing how close relationships might influence the psychopathology and treatment of an anxiety-disordered individual. Chapter 2 outlines the current state of measurement approaches within both of these domains. As recognized by Snyder and colleagues, our understanding of the interpersonal context of anxiety-related problems is constrained by measurement properties of instruments to assess both of these arenas. Chapter 2 is designed to provide a user-friendly overview of assessment strategies in these two areas, with the intent of benefiting both clinical and research activities. Together, these two chapters provide a foundation for the balance of the volume. Section II is organized around specific topics under the broad umbrella of anxiety disorders. Each of the eight chapters in this section reviews the available literature on interpersonal processes, divided into specific age groups or disorders. Chapters 3 and 4 cover interpersonal processes pertaining to anxiety disorders in children and adolescents, respectively. The remaining chapters discuss interpersonal processes pertaining to various specific disorders in adults: social anxiety disorder (Chap. 5), obsessive-compulsive disorder (Chap. 6), posttraumatic stress disorder (Chap. 7), panic disorder and agoraphobia (Chap. 8), generalized anxiety disorder (Chap. 9), and health anxiety and hypochondriasis (Chap. 10). The chapters in Section II are intended to provide the reader with a critical overview of the current knowledge about interpersonal processes within a specific condition, including a clinical description, review of etiological formulations, summary of research about interpersonal processes, and information pertaining to comorbidity and treatment. Clinical material is included to help readers to bridge the gap between clinical and research work. In designing this book, my primary goal was to integrate available knowledge on the topic, with a longer term goal of stimulating additional clinical and research work in this domain. It is hoped is that this book will begin a series of dialogues between individuals from somewhat disparate fields and motivate young scholars and clinicians to focus their energies on a closer examination of how relationships function within the anxiety disorders"--Introduction.
