Abstract [en]

The relation between Anxiety Sensitivity (AS) and certain anxiety disorders such as Panic Disorder and the panic response itself are well established by theory and research. Adolescence is understood to be a risk period for the development of Anxiety disorders. Certain styles of coping such as avoidance has beensuggested to be risk factors as well. In this study, the relation between AS and coping is explored using self-report measures (CASI-R and A-COPE), aiming to see if adolescents with high or low AS have an association with certain coping styles, understood by theory also to be potential risk factors. No reliable association were found between groups with high or low AS and any coping style. AS and total extent of coping did not correlate. A small and negative, significant correlation was found between age and AS.

Abstract [sv]

Relationen mellan Ångeskänslighet (AS, Anxiety sensitivity), och visa ångestsyndrom som Panikångest, såväl som panikångestresponen själv är idag väl teoretiskt och empiriskt etablerad. Tonåren är vidare förstådd som en riskperiod för utvecklingen av ångestsyndrom. Vissa copingstilar som undvikande har även föreslagits vara en riskfaktorer. Den här studien undersöker relationen mellan AS och Coping, med hjälp av självskattningsformulär, med syftet att undersöka om ungdomar med förhöjda eller låga nivåer av AS kan sägas vara associerade med användningen av specifika copingstilar, teoretiskt förstådda som riskfaktorer. Ingen reliabel association kunde påvisas mellan grupper med höga eller låga nivåer av AS, och någon specifik copingstil. AS och totalnivå av användning av coping korrelerade ej. En liten, negativ, signifikant korrelation gick att finna mellan Ålder och AS.
