Anxiety and School Related Interventions: A Selective Review and Synthesis of the Psychological Literature. Interpretive Study II. Division of Research Reports.
Phillips, Beeman N.
This is the second in a series of studies designed to make the latest research on selected topics available to the educational community. Specifically, this report reviews, synthesizes, and interprets the literature on anxiety. The various chapters: (1) describe the different ways in which anxiety can be viewed as a response (eg. phenomenologically, physiologically, and behaviorally); (2) discuss and evaluate what learning theory, psychoanalytic theory, and cognitive theory have to say about anxiety; (3) contain information pertinent to the different methods for measuring anxiety; (4) present the research on the antecedents, concomitants and consequences of anxiety for learning and school performance; and (5) elaborate primary, secondary and tertiary intervention strategies which are feasible in the school setting. The appendices contain discussions focusing on testing for anxiety, as well as samples of a number of such tests. (TL)
