ANXIETY Sample Clauses

ANXIETY. The characteristics of anxiety are a key element in the dynamics of psychopathologies (Xxxxx, 2000). Anxiety can be described as “the fearful apprehension of a danger to come or of a misfortune accompanied by a feeling of dysphoria or of somatic symptoms of tension.” Symptoms of anxiety are often felt in traumatic situations. To measure the gravity of the symptoms of anxiety we used the Xxxx Anxiety IndexBAI, a frequently used self-evaluation instrument validated for francophone populations. Table 11 compares the average scores recorded using Xxxx Anxiety Inventory for the five groups of engineers: those who are currently victims of bullying (CB), those who were victimized in the recent past (RB), those who were victimized but not in the past 12 months (PB), those who witnessed bullying at work (WB), and those who never experienced bullying of any form (NB). The variance analysis results are significant for all groups. The probability that the average differences among the five groups are due to sampling errors is extremely low (p < .001). The scale’s reliability rating is 0.92. Table 11: Evaluation of the Severity of Anxiety According to the BAI NB WB PB RB XX XXX Overall Index ( 0 - 63 ) 2.5 4.3 4.1 8.8 10.4 Anxiety 0 – 7 (no symptoms) 92.9% 86.2% 84.8% 61.8% 51.0% 8 - 15 (light) 5.0% 6.9% 4.3% 20.0% 22.4% 16 - 25 (average) 1.8% 3.4% 10.9 10.9% 18.4% 26 and higher (severe) 0.3% 3.5% 0% 7.3% 8.2% Through the use of the Scheffé test, multiple comparisons allowed us to conduct a more precise analysis. The average differences between the groups are statistically significant when we compare two groups: those currently or recently subjected to bullying and the three other groups. This reveals that the average scores obtained by people who are victims of bullying (CB), or were so in the recent past (RB) are significantly higher than those of the people who have never experienced bullying (NB). In the group of people who are victims of bullying, 8.2% suffer from anxiety sufficiently severe to require medical attention. Among those who were victimized in the last twelve months, 7.3% are still suffering from episodes of anxiety which are sufficiently severe to require medical attention. Anxiety appears to be less present than depression.
ANXIETY. Worry, fear, over-concern for present or future, uneasiness.
ANXIETY. Anxiety was measured using the State-Trait Anxiety Index, which is a 20-item scale with 4-point Likert scale responses (Speilberger & Vagg, 1984; Spielberger, VanDercar, Greaner, Hibler, & Bloch, 1980). It is important to note that this scale is sensitive to changes in transitory anxiety. An example item from the index includes, “Right now…I am tense; I am worried.” The answer options were in a Likert scale response pattern with (1) “Almost never” to (4) “Almost always.” A total anxiety score was computed by summing all responses. Responses could range from 20-80, with higher scores indicating higher levels of anxiety. The Cronbach's alpha reliability for this scale was 0.941 suggesting excellent internal consistency of scale items (Total Scale Mean= 39.88; SD= 12.54).
ANXIETY. The next set of hierarchal regression analyses conducted focused on the outcome of anxiety. The first table presented below in this section, Table 4.5, summarizes the results of the regression analysis conducted on anxiety with Zarit Burden total scores. In this analysis, statistical significance was indicated again with respect to caregiver burden and avoidance coping. In the first model, burden was entered by itself, showing a significant relationship with anxiety (β=0.260, p<0.001). Burden remained significant in the second model, after adding in demographic variables (β=0.174, p=0.001), as well as in the third model, controlling for both demographic variables and other covariates (β=0.132, p=0.017).

Similar to depression, a final model with both caregiver burden and perceived discrimination was conducted. In this regression model, when perceived discrimination was added to the model, burden did remain a significant predictor of anxiety. Discrimination was found to be an independent predictor of anxiety above and beyond the other predictors of anxiety in this sample of caregivers. For each one-unit increase in perceived discrimination, predicted anxiety scores increased by 0.263 units (p=0.048). Additionally, these results indicated that a one-unit increase in the use of avoidant coping was associated with a 0.414 unit increase in anxiety (p=0.008). Overall, the adjusted R-squared in the final model indicated that 35% of the variance in anxiety was explained on the basis of the predictors included in the final model. The R2 change resulted in discrimination explaining close...
