This thesis focused on explicating two cognitive constructs, intolerance of uncertainty and meta-worry, which are both considered to be relevant concepts in theories explaining the etiology and maintenance of worry and GAD. In this section, the results of previous chapters will be summarized, theoretical and methodological issues will be discussed, and an attempt will be made to relate the current findings to the existing literature. Finally, recommendations for future research will be made.
