Content By: Vanderminden, J., & Esala, J. J. (2019). Beyond Symptoms: Race and Gender Predict Anxiety Disorder Diagnosis. Society and Mental Health9(1), 111–125. https://doi.org/10.1177/2156869318811435

Course Description: Anxiety is one of the most commonly reported mental disorders, with over 1/3 of the US population meeting the diagnostic criteria at some point in their lifetime. The onset of anxiety usually occurs early in adolescent years and severity can predict future disorder progression.  Anxiety disorders are often underdiagnosed in specific social groups for a variety of reasons.  The present study examines the disparity between anxiety symptoms and anxiety diagnoses in certain demographics.  The results show that there is an apparent implicit bias in the diagnosing of anxiety disorder based on race and gender.  Findings also detail disorder trajectories of those individuals who have been underdiagnosed. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the central aim of the study and state the methods related to implicit biases in anxiety diagnosis
  2. Evaluate the uneven distribution of anxiety symptom diagnosis across variables of race and gender
  3. Identify which social groups are more likely to experience anxiety and consider plausible targeting parameters for treatment

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Beyond Symptoms: Race and Gender Predict Anxiety Disorder Diagnosis
  • Review the Course Descriptions and Learning Objectives
  • Consider the factors related to anxiety diagnoses in specific demographic populations
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article to better understand the relationship between race/gender and underdiagnosed anxiety disorder symptoms
