ABSTRACT

Coronavirus Anxiety Project [website]   [open html - 0B]

From the Purpose: "[The Coronavirus Anxiety Project] is a research team that is studying how fear and anxiety about the coronavirus are affecting mental health and well-being of people around the globe. As of June 1, 2020, we have two mental health screeners of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] anxiety that have solid reliability and validity support. These instruments are now registered as research tools by the NIH [National Institutes of Health] Public Health Emergency and Disaster Research Response (DR2) Program. [...] The Coronavirus Anxiety Scale (CAS; Lee, 2020) assesses dysfunctional anxiety symptoms associated with the coronavirus. The CAS is currently being translated into many different languages and is being used by over 50 teams of health professionals and researchers from around the world. The newest COVID-19 instrument is the Obsession with COVID-19 Scale (OCS; Lee, 2020), which assesses persistent and disturbed thinking about COVID-19. Our hope is that health professionals and scholars will use these tools to identify people at risk for or suffering from clinically significant anxiety related to the coronavirus."
