The Scale of Preschool Anxiety: Obsessive-compulsive Disorder at Individual Level

The Scale of Preschool Anxiety: Obsessive-compulsive Disorder at Individual Level👧👦😣


Hi everyone!


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!✨
