ETCHEBARNE, Ignacio; JUAN, Santiago; BALBI, Paula R.  y  ROUSSOS, Andrés J.. Clinical approach to worry in generalized anxiety disorder: preliminary results. Anu. investig. [online]. 2012, vol.19, n.1, pp.215-223. ISSN 1851-1686.

The goal of the present study was to characterize the clinical approach to worry in Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), based on how psychotherapists with differing theoretical orientations included it in their interventions. A secondary analysis was conducted with interviews of 5 cognitive and 5 psychoanalytic therapists, originally interviewed by Etchebarne, Juan, Gómez Penedo and Roussos (in evaluation). Participants were asked to listen to a quasi-clinical material, and to intervene as if they were with a real patient. Interviews were audio-recorded and transcribed. For the data analysis in the present study, responses were categorized using Consensual Qualitative Research methodology, and the proportion of interventions targeting worry was also analyzed using the Multidimensional Classification of Psychotherapeutic Interventions. Results suggest that worry is a relevant phenomenon for all participants. Nevertheless, its approach shows common and specific foci regarding each theoretical framework.
