It was organized in conjunction with the Collaborative Research Center SFB TRR 58, Fear, Anxiety, Anxiety Disorders (funded by the DFG) and also focused on stress, anxiety and mental health which are topics of interest in scope of the IMPRESS project.

We presented a poster with the title “Development and test of a new scale for the measurement of digital anxiety” which was based on ideas of the IMPRESS project and built on data which was collected in a Bachelor thesis at LMU. The developed scale can be an approach to assess the subjective level of digital anxiety.
