What is the theory behind this Intolerance of Uncertainty in GAD Worksheet?

Intolerance of Uncertainty refers to one’s fears and excessive concerns about the unknown future. It can put a person at high risk for developing Generalised Anxiety Disorder which is characterized by a persistent feeling of anxiety and fear. Individuals with GAD find themselves in a constant state of fear and worry leading to unhelpful coping behaviors which maintain their anxiety and significantly impact their daily functioning. 

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet will provide a checklist of behaviours that people with intolerance of uncertainty frequently engage in as a way to minimise the uncertainty in any situation. The checklist can be helpful for individuals diagnosed with GAD to recognize their own pattern of  behaviours and also for recognizing the signs before a diagnosis. 

How to use the worksheet?

This worksheet can be used in mental health awareness campaigns to help individuals recognize the patterns of behaviour associated with GAD. It can also be used to help individuals already diagnosed with GAD to gain a deeper understanding of their own safety behaviours before learning how to manage it.
