Example text

Some studies have found that the belief that one was consuming alcohol, even when one was actually consuming a placebo, was enough to lower feelings of anxiety among anxiety-disordered patients (Abrams, Kushner, Lisdahl, Medina, & Voight, 2001; Lehman, Brown, Palfai, & Barlow 2002). On the other hand, research by MacDonald, Stewart, Hutson, Rhyno, and Loughlin (2001) conducted with participants high in anxiety sensitivity did not support a cognitively-mediated tension reduction effect of alcohol.

And conversely, for those with GAD, the alcohol use may play a causal role in the development of the anxiety disorder. However, Chilcoat and Breslau (1998) clarify that the temporality criterion is necessary but not sufficient for determining a causal association between disorders. Finally, the prospective study by Kushner and colleagues (1999) mentioned earlier in the chapter that found an increased risk of future anxiety disorders for individuals with alcohol dependence also found the converse.
