Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 (GAD-7)

The Generalized Anxiety Disorder 7 (GAD-7) is a brief self-report measure used to assess symptoms of anxiety. While the GAD-7 can be helpful for diagnosing anxiety. It is also a reliable and valid measure of anxiety severity. It is useful for quickly assessing the presence and severity of anxiety symptoms during clinical intakes and is also sensitive enough to change that it can be used to track patient progress throughout treatment. In short, yes. It has excellent psychometric properties for both the detection of anxiety and the assessment of symptom severity. Scores of 5, 10, and 15 are taken as the cut-off points for mild, moderate, and severe anxiety, respectively.

It is very important to note that this questionnaire does not replace the need for formal diagnostic assessment and that this screening measure is primarily used to inform clinical decision making. To be clear, you cannot substantiate an anxiety diagnosis with the GAD-7 alone. However, it is helpful to determine whether or not a diagnosis of anxiety needs to be considered and to track treatment progress for those already diagnosed with anxiety disorders.

LICENSED CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST

ABOUT ME

My name is Dr. Benson Munyan. I specialize in working with those experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and trauma. If you are reading this, there’s a good chance you’re looking for something. Whatever the origin of your story, you are here. There is no time like the present to change our tomorrow.

OUR FIRST SESSION

From our very first session, skills are introduced, demonstrated, and assigned as practice assignments between meetings. I collaboratively set each session agenda with my clients, ensuring we have time for following up since the last session, troubleshooting any problems with skills or homework, and working on new problems or material.

MY APPROACH

Let’s be honest. Sometimes, life is hard. And sometimes, it downright sucks. There, I said it. I believe we should be able to use everyday language in therapy, and that participating in therapy as our most genuine selves empowers us to better understand the challenges we’re facing as well as potential solutions.
