Letter to the Editor
Sir: Given its high prevalence and cost to society, generalized
anxiety disorder (GAD) is a mental health problem that
merits investigation of etiology, treatment, and prevention. We
conducted a pilot study to investigate the efficacy of a preventative
psychoeducational workshop for GAD with college students
at risk for developing the disorder.
Method. A prevention workshop for GAD was developed
based on empirically supported cognitive-behavioral treatments
for GAD, and it was examined in college students who were
screened using the Penn State Worry Questionnaire (PSWQ).
