Demographic information[edit]

Last few studies are much older (late 90s), are they as useful?


Could add ICD criteria Could add DSM-IV to 5 changes Maybe collapse less important/less ideal measures (eg: based on DSM-IV, not free measures) Maybe have references that indicate certain measures have good reliability and validity; currently only based on book Maybe link to explanations for reliability/validity information (HAVE A SEPARATE PAGE FOR ALL THE TERMS) If measures has PDF, link to home page of that measure instead of direct PDF; allows for linkage to multiple versions "Best recommended for" column should be deleted if it's not going to be fleshed out


Is this the right medication that should be listed? Specific dosage seems a lot and not applicable

Process and outcome measures[edit]

Hard to explain table, could use some explaining

Hard to find SCID diagnosis measures in PDF form that are consistent

Found a new type of treatment for GAD: Three-year follow-up and clinical implications of a mindfulness meditation-based stress reduction intervention in the treatment of anxiety disorders.

Process and outcome measures[edit]

Removed: Recommended diagnostic instruments Anxiety Disorders Interview Schedule for Children/Parents (ADIS-C/P) Almost all available publications so far were evaluating the use of ADIS-C/P under the DSM-IV framework. Within those studies, ADIS-C/P demonstrated decent convergent and discriminant validity with other self-report anxiety measures such as the Multidimensional Anxiety Scale for Children (MASC; March et al., 1997; Wood et al., 2002). However, it is worth noting that MASC predicts GAD poorly (AUC ranges from .55 - .65; Van Gastel et al., 2008).

In addition to its concurrent validity, ADIS-C/P also demonstrated high interrater reliability between parents and children for general anxiety disorder (kappa = .8; Lyneham et al., 2007).
