  1. AEQ subscale scores are given as mean ± standard deviation [0–6]. Note that the HDS and PPS subscales together form the BES subscale, which was included because some of the previous studies list only the BES subscale. Statistics are results of the Mann Whitney U test. AEQ Avoidance Endurance Questionnaire
