Chapter 7 discusses anxiety disorders in Asians. It considers the identification of anxiety disorders (DSM nosology and criteria for anxiety disorders, specific phobias, panic attacks, panic disorder, and agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and social phobia), cultural factors relevant to the assessment, etiology, and treatment of anxiety disorders in Asians (self-construal, self-criticism, identity consistency, and face-saving), difficulties in using current nosology and assessment measures for identifying anxiety disorders in Asians (Likerty-type rating scales, operationalization of constructs). The chapter also explores perspectives on the causes of anxiety disorders in Asians, and treatments for anxiety disorders.
