EVALUACIÓN DE LA ANSIEDAD EN DESPERTARES CON ACTIVIDAD ONÍRICA

By I Iñigo Saez-Uribarri

Abstract

A total of 236 awakenings corresponding to 169 individuals have been analysed by means of a 31-item questionnaire. It has been demonstrated that anxiety upon awakening is a multidimensional phenomenon that can be assessed with an adequate factor validity (KMO = .906). The internal structure of the questionnaire used in this study shows the need of distinguishing two general manifestations of anxiety. The first one is due to excess of activation, while the second is due to a failure in the expected restorative-reactivating effect of sleep. Statistically significant differences have been observed in connection with the individuals’ gender, age, frequency of nightmares, or by the fact of awakening spontaneously or not
