We evaluated the utility of Anxiety scales for the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) and the Teacher Report Form (TRF). The scales (CBCL-A; TRF-A) were examined using mothers and teachers of anxiety-disordered (AD; 157 mothers, 70 teachers) and non-anxiety-disordered (NAD; 100 mothers, 17 teachers) children. Separate samples of parents and teachers of AD (mothers=145, fathers=120, teachers=137) and NAD (mothers=35, fathers=29, teachers=27) children cross-validated the original findings. CBCL-A and TRF-A scores significantly discriminated AD children from NAD children and correlated significantly with other measures of child anxiety. The CBCL-A and TRF-A were sensitive to treatment changes. Relative to the CBCL/TRF Anxious/Depressed syndromes and Internalizing dimensions, the CBCL-A and TRF-A improved prediction of anxiety status. Relative to Achenbach, Demenci, and Rescorla's [Achenbach, T. M., Demenci, L., & Rescorla, L. A. (2003). DSM-oriented and empirically based approaches to constructing scales from the same item pools. Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, 32, 328-340] CBCL Anxiety subscale, the CBCL-A predicted comparably. Findings are discussed in terms of the CBCL-A and TRF-A as clinical tools.

"The CBCL scales are among the most widely used measures of youth emotional and behavioral problems and use extensive normative data to generate agestandardized estimates of the severity of internalizing and externalizing psychopathology. The broad-scale internalizing and externalizing scales as well as the internalizing syndrome subscales have demonstrated validity in discriminating between youths with and without psychopathology (Achenbach, 1991; Achenbach, Dumenci, & Rescorla, 2003; Chen, Faraone, Biederman, & Tsuang, 1994; Ebesutani et al., 2010; Kendall et al., 2007; Seligman, Ollendick, Langley, & Baldacci, 2004). We examined interactions between RSA and psychosocial stress exposure in predicting the externalizing composite and the following dimensions of the internalizing composite: anxiety=depression and depression= withdrawal. "
"The CBCL consists of a broad internalizing and externalizing problems subscale as well as eight syndrome scales. A specific anxiety scale, the CBCL-A, takes the sum of 16 CBCL items (Kendall et al., 2007). The CBCL-A was found to be sensitive to treatment, and distinguished anxiety disordered and normal children. "
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The present study examined specific religious variables (e.g., religious service attendance, importance
of faith) as predictors of anxiety in adolescents. Participants included a subsample of the
National Institute for Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Study of Early Child Care
(n = 952; 48.3% female; 76.6% Caucasian). Youth completed religiosity measures in early
adolescence (6th grade; ages 11–12) and in mid-adolescence (age 15); parents reported on youth
religiosity in 5th grade (ages 10 –11). Anxiety measures of youth were completed by parents in early
adolescence and by youth in mid-adolescence. Results demonstrated a modest positive association
between religious service attendance/youth group participation and anxiety in mid-adolescence.
Time spent in weekday evening religious activities in early adolescence modestly predicted greater
anxiety in mid-adolescence. Finally, youth who increased in religious service attendance experienced
greater anxiety in mid-adolescence. The relation was mediated by self-reported guilt. Implications
and suggestions for future research are discussed.
