Abstract

Anxiety is usually listed as one of the basic emotions (see Chapter 6). It can range from mild to severe, is generally unpleasant and is usually accompanied by heightened autonomic arousal and sometimes by a characteristic facial expression. Anxiety may constitute a warning and can be seen as useful in helping a person to cope with threatening situations, but in excess it may interfere with coping.
