OBJECTIVE To examine a large sample of patients with anxiety and the association between types of complementary and alternative treatments that were used, demographic variables, diagnostic categories, and treatment outcomes. METHOD Cross-sectional and longitudinal survey during the Coordinated Anxiety Learning and Management (CALM) study that assessed(More)
CONTEXT Anxiety disorders commonly present in primary care, where evidence-based mental health treatments often are unavailable or suboptimally delivered. OBJECTIVE To compare evidence-based treatment for anxiety disorders with usual care (UC) in primary care for principal and comorbid generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder (PD), social(More)
BACKGROUND: New tools are needed to examine physical activity and the contexts in which it occurs. Community parks contribute to physical activity, but measuring activity and associated variables in them is challenging because area contexts change and the numbers and characteristics of users are highly variable. METHODS: We developed SOPARC (System for(More)

We propose to alleviate this problem through the use of Hierarchical Partition Models. Our approach is compared with the previous one from an interpretative and pre-dictive point of(More)
