David H. Barlow is an American clinical psychologist at Boston University

Work on anxietyEdit

Possible causes Edit

He conducted a study that showed three common characteristics of people suffering from chronic anxiety, which he characterized as "a generalized biological vulnerability," "a generalized psychological vulnerability," and "a specific psychological vulnerability."[1] While chemical issues in the brain that result in anxiety (especially resulting from genetics) is well documented, this study highlights an additional environmental factor that may result from being raised by parents suffering from chronic anxiety themselves.
