Anxiety disorders are the most prevalent mental disorders in the United States, are the most ­frequently encountered disorders in primary mental health services, and are hypothesized to be the most common presenting problems in psychodynamic therapeutic practices [1]. In fact, when combining both national and international data, the best estimate for lifetime prevalence of anxiety disorders is 16.6% [2]. These disorders include generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder (PD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), social phobia, agoraphobia, and specific phobias [2].
