abstract
Some evidence suggests that that Behavioral Activation and Inhibition Scales (BIS/BAS Scale) are predictive of a variety of disorders, but evidence is limited, particularly for adult anxiety disorders. This study will examine the relationship between high behavioral inhibition and the symptoms associated with a variety of anxiety disorders, including obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), and social anxiety disorder. We hypothesize that individuals who score high on the BIS scale will report numerous anxiety disorder symptoms. Students at the University of Wyoming enrolled in summer classes will complete the BIS/BAS scales and measures of symptoms of various anxiety disorders, such as the Penn State Worry Questionnaire (PSWQ). If found that inhibition scores relate to a number of different anxiety disorder symptoms, then the BIS might be employed in assessing the risk of numerous anxiety disorders for adults in the future.
