Back cover copy

Anxiety is an emotion that appears early in childhood and follows a typical developmental course. This book provides a comprehensive overview of relevant theory and research related to the origins of information processing biases and its contribution to clinical levels of anxiety in children and adolescents. Focusing on theoretical and research issues, the book highlights how different researchers have explored diverse aspects of information processing, such as selective attention, inhibition and interpretation, in anxious children and adolescents. It further investigates the origin and treatment of information processing biases in child anxiety within the broader context of developmental psychopathology. "Information Processing Biases and Anxiety: A Developmental Perspective" is a unique and up-to-date summary of the development of information processing biases and anxiety in childhood and adolescence, and of the preventive methods and treatment protocols.
