GARCIA-BATISTA, Zoilo Emilio; CANO-VINDEL, Antonio  and  XIOMARA HERRERA-MARTINEZ, Solmary. Comparative study of anxiety in Spanish and Dominican students. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2014, vol.7, n.3, pp.25-32. ISSN 1989-3809.

The aim of this study was to compare the manifestations of anxiety in Dominican and Spanish medical students. The total sample consisted of 160 students of both nationalities (80 students per group divided into 40 men and 40 women per group). All participants were more than 18 years old and were selected using a non-probabilistic intentional sampling method. The inclusion criterion was not having been previously diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. The assessment instrument used was the Inventory of Situations and Responses of Anxiety (ISRA). Data were analysed using ANOVA to determine statistically significant differences by gender and nationality. Differences by gender were found in cognitive and physiological responses, overall level of anxiety, and situational areas of anxiety assessment and anxiety in everyday situations. No significant differences were found by nationality.

Keywords : Anxiety; ISRA; Dominicans; Comparative.
