OCD rarely begins after age fifty (Steketee & Barlow, 2002). If untreated, the prognosis of OCD is poor. ANXIETY DISORDERS HAVE MUCH IN COMMON In the past, researchers and therapists have focused on the differences between anxiety disorders. At the phenomenological level such differences are obvious, particularly if one focuses on events that elicit fear and anxiety across the anxiety disorders. In specific phobias, for instance, we have focused on a specific object, event, or situation. In social phobia, we have focused on social situations.

In many cases false alarms are not clinical problems that warrant clinical attention. What might help us understand how fear and anxiety can become disordered is to examine the much larger number of people in the general population who have panic attacks and no panic disorder. Epidemiological studies consistently place the prevalence of panic disorder in the general population at around 3 to 5 percent (Salkovskis, 1998). Several studies (for details, see Barlow, 2002) have shown that about 35 percent of presumably normal young adults had one or more panic attacks in a given year.

We believe that this posture of acceptance and nonavoidance is one of the key preventive mechanisms that protects many of these nonclinical panickers from developing panic disorder or social phobia. It is only when people desperately and rigidly try to avoid the experience of panic attacks, and devote increasingly larger portions of their life energy and space to that task, that they are at high risk of developing actual panic disorder. , restriction of activities, avoidance behavior) to reduce the likelihood of having another attack.
