The Scale of Preschool Anxiety: Obsessive-compulsive Disorder at Individual Level???
Anxiety disorders are a type of psychiatric conditions that are not rare in children. ?One of the common mental disorder is the obsessive-compulsive disorder where a person has obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours.?
According to Leung and her colleagues (2018), Hong Kong children were reported as having higher levels of anxiety than the Australian counterparts; it has been suggested the competitive atmosphere for academic success in Hong Kong contributes to the high levels of anxiety in children (Essau et al., 2008).??
Early identification and intervention during the preschool years are critical for minimizing their detrimental long-term effects. ?
A scale that measures preschool anxiety (Obsessive-compulsive disorder) at the individual level will be useful if you are working in this area!✨
