DIFFERENTIATED ASSESSMENT OF ANXIETY IN ELDERLY WOMEN
The article presents the results of a study designed to assess the anxiety and an analysis of its individual components in 104 elderly women. Summary of the data obtained shows that women between ages 55-64 years have higher anxiety in comparison with older women (65-74 years of age). This is due to emotional difficulties associated with a person’s transition to old age. The anxiety is expressed as emotional discomfort indicators and in anxious assessment of near-term perspective. High indication of asthenic symptoms were present in both age groups, which is likely to be associated not only with the manifestation of anxiety but also with a separate state characterizing the elderly.
