New paper in the International Journal of Psychology and Psychological Therapy!

Another article accepted, this time in the International Journal of Psychology and Psychological Therapy.¬† This one is about attentional control, and whether it is linked to anxiety disorders.¬† We know poor attentional control is linked to anxiety, but we didn’t know whether it had a special connection to anxiety disorders.¬† In other words, we didn’t know whether there would be a measurable difference in attentional control between someone with the mildest diagnosable anxiety disorder, and someone with very severe but not-diagnosably-high anxiety.¬† Long story short, there isn’t.
