Course Description: Of psychiatric disorders, the most prevalent are anxiety disorders. Research has indicated that the risk of cardiovascular disease and cardiac mortality is significantly increased for individuals suffering with anxiety disorders. Cardiac autonomic dysfunction, which plays a key role in the development of cardiovascular disease, can be assessed through resting heart rate variability. This brief advanced course examines the relationship between worry, anxiety, and  resting heart rate variability.

Objectives:

  1. Identify anxiety disorders and resting heart rate variability.
  2. Discuss theories related to resting heart rate variability.
  3. Examine correlation of resting heart rate variability and anxiety symptoms.
  4. Explore applications of resting heart rate variability as an index for psychopathology.
