Trait motivation and emotion regulation as predictors of anxiety
thesisposted on 2012-06-01, 00:00 authored by Elodie O'Connor
This thesis demonstrates that high avoidance motivation, low approach motivation, and maladaptive emotion regulation contribute to the prediction of anxiety, within groups at low risk for an anxiety disorder. High avoidance motivation is largely the sole predictor of anxiety for those at high risk for an anxiety disorder.
