Anxiety (2012)

An information brochure for adults with low English literacy

This booklet is part of a series developed for people with low English literacy skills.

The authors discuss the difference between anxiety and fear, and between feeling anxious upon occasion and having an anxiety disorder. They offer suggestions to help people deal with anxiety on their own and explain where to turn if those steps are not enough.

The authors also include a list of possible causes of anxiety, including having to speak in front of a group; a visit to the doctor; and the loss of a loved one.

The authors use clear language throughout; provide definitions for unfamiliar words; and offer pronunciation guides for difficult words.

The booklet was prepared by Vecova Centre for Disability Services and Research (Vecova), formerly known as the Vocational and Rehabilitation Research Institute (VRRI). For more information, please click here: http://vecova.ca/.
