Anxiety ranges from a normal reaction to an unfamiliar situation, to a debilitating pathological state. Because it is such a common reason for people to take medications or to seek care, many assessment scales have been developed. This chapter reviews the evolution of theoretical approaches to anxiety. It considers eight leading anxiety scales that represent different approaches to its measurement.

Keywords: anxiety measurement; pathalogical state; assessment scales; theoretical approaches; anxiety scales
