It has been estimated that 30 to 40% of the general population are bothered by anxiety (Barlow et al., 1984), with nonphobic anxiety disorders accounting for 15% of all outpatient problems (Lader, 1978; Reed, 1973). A survey of more than a half-million patients seen by family practitioners found that anxiety ranked fifth behind the preventive examination, hypertension, lacerations or trauma, and sore throat as the most common diagnosis (Marsland, Wood, & Mayo, 1976). Clearly, among the emotional disorders, anxiety is one of the most common.
