Universal Journal of Educational Research, v5 n1 p 121-128 2017
This study aims to examine the relationships between subdimensions of anxiety sensitivity and anxiety. The participants in the study were 841 undergraduate students (411 females; 430 males) randomly selected from three different faculties--Faculties of Technical Education, Education, and Sport Sciences--at Mugla Sitki Kocman University. Data collection instruments included the Anxiety Sensitivity Index-Revised, (ASI-R), and also Beck Anxiety Inventory, (BAI). The data were analyzed using Pearson product-moment correlation analysis and structural equation modeling. The results indicate that there were significant positive associations between subdimensions of anxiety sensitivity and anxiety. The results also indicated that the fear of cognitive dyscontrol subdimension of anxiety sensitivity was the most important predictor of the anxiety for emerging adults. Further research examining the relationships between subdimensions of anxiety sensitivity and anxiety are necessary to strengthen the current study's findings.
