This thesis is concerned with anxiety disorders in adolescents: their treatment and development. Volume one consists of three parts: Part one is a narrative literature review of studies examining psychological treatments designed, or developmentally adapted, exclusively for use with adolescents with anxiety disorders. Their effectiveness and the state of the evidence base are examined and directions and suggestions for future research are made. Part two is an empirical paper investigating the role of parental discourse styles in the development of anxiety disorders in adolescents with both non-anxious and child comparison groups. The results are discussed in relation to developmental and clinical implications and recommendations made for future research. Part three is a critical appraisal which discusses the methodological and conceptual issues associated with the parental discourse coding scheme and the narrative task used in the empirical paper. Limitations relating to the study sample, and the positive and negative aspects of using pre-collected data, are considered.
