This chapter outlines the current best-practice methods of assessing the presence and severity of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) in adults. The chapter reviews structured diagnostic interviews and self-report measures of GAD symptoms including the Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI), Anxiety Disorders Interview Schedule (ADIS), Structured Clinical Interview for Axis I DSM-IV Disorders (SCID), Penn State Worry Questionnaire (PSWQ), and Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 (GAD-7). Evidence of each measure's validity and reliability are provided. All assessment measures reviewed in this chapter have been shown to have sound psychometric properties.
