Worry functions as a cognitive avoidance response to threatening material. Borkovec and associates (2004), for instance, have gathered convincing empirical evidence that the function of worry is to avoid imagery and physiological arousal associated with anxiety and negative affect. When people worry, they are mostly talking to themselves. That is, worry involves more abstract verbal thinking than imagery (Borkovec & Newman, 1998). Hence, worry allows people to approach emotional topics from an abstract conceptual perspective and thereby avoid aversive images and intense negative emotions in the short run.

The logical consequence of this account was that successful treatment needs to involve helping clients to confront feared stimuli and situations in a safe therapeutic environment so as to allow for new corrective emotional learning and extinction of excessive fear and anxiety (Wolpe, 1958). This view survived more or less intact until the 1970s, when criticisms mounted suggesting that anxiety disorders are not solely about conditioning. There is more to the human experience than conditioning because of the human capacity for language and our propensity to engage in complex and infinite verbal-symbolic cognitive processes.

Worry and anxiety-related responses are likely to be particularly intense during periods of life stress and tend to decrease during periods of low stress. As with social phobia, the onset of GAD is not typically associated with negative life events.

These observations further support the view that it is the frequent experiencing of negative uncontrollable life events in general, rather than a specific traumatic experience, that determines individual 24 Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Anxiety susceptibility to GAD.
