The chapter starts by outlining what is already known about the ecology of adolescent development and culture and how it relates to the development of anxiety disorders in individuals. Identifying which young people are most at risk to develop anxiety disorders after experiencing negative life events, the chapter argues, is an important next step toward developing selective treatment and prevention intervention programs. The chapter then goes on to explain what is not currently known about what factors are linked specifically to anxiety disorders, as opposed to what might cause a general likelihood of development of a disorder. It is critical, therefore, that more research be conducted on obtaining basic knowledge about specific risk and protective factors of pathological anxiety in adolescents. This research must carefully consider the context of adolescent development and culture in trying to discern the particular factors and the manner in which these factors interact.
