Developments in the Treatment and Diagnosis of Anxiety Disorders
Hans-Ulrich Wittchen and Andrew T. Gloster
Anxiety disorders occur frequently, begin at an early age, significantly impair patients’ lives, and are
often associated with other comorbid conditions. Despite impressive improvements in the treatment of
anxiety disorders in the last decade, the mechanisms leading to comorbidity and the processes
responsible for therapeutic change remain unclear. Within this context, clear and precise definitions of
the putative active ingredients are needed in order to further improve treatments. This article reviews
these critical issues and sets the stage for the other articles in this special issue.
