The broad range of issues touched on in this article highlights our view of temperament and psychopathology as complex, multidimensional phenomena that are embedded within multiple causative pathways and which, in turn, produce any number of developmental outcomes. As such, it seems clear that any future progress is almost wholly dependent on our ability to forge multidisciplinary research programs that can address the link between temperament and anxiety from multiple levels of analysis across both time and contexts. This will allow the field to come closer to the larger goals shared across psychology: description, prediction, and intervention.
