Conscious Appraisal And The Modification Of Automatic Processes In Anxiety

 

Authors: Mansell, W.

Clinical and experimental evidence for this proposal is reviewed and three different classes of routes to the development and modification of these automatic processes are described: an innate route, repetition/habituation, and conscious appraisal."
