A perceived lack of control over negative events is assumed central to the development of anxiety disorders. So far, only questionnaires were used to test this theory, but they have several disadvantages.
In this study, the Implicit Association Procedure (IAP) was adapted to measure anxiety-related perceived control in an indirect way. IAP data of 33 non-selected children were compared to a direct measure of perceived control, the Anxiety Control Questionnaire for Children (ACQ-C). Results showed that higher anxious children had lower perceived control over anxiety-related events than lower anxious children, on both the indirect and the direct measure.
