The aim of the present thesis was to explore wether parental psychopathology and threat-related selective attention were related to outcome of cognitive-behavioral therapy in anxiety-disordered children and adolescents. Pre- to post-treatment changes of selective attention were also examined in relation to treatment success. The second aim was to examine whether cognitive coping after the experience of negative life events is related to anxiety disorders in children and adolescents.
