Anxiety is thought not to be cause by a single event but rather a build up of many factors such as a traumatic event loss of sleep diet and exercise and genetics and family hystory.
It is thought genetics play a major contributing factor in the symptoms of anxiety while some argue it is the environment people are in or bought up in. The studys still are not exactly diffinative.
It is thought different personalitys are more prone to anxiety attacks and symptoms. While some research suggests attachment patterns to parents in early child hood have a major influence in anxiety in adults. Attachment theory is one of the most diffinative theoruy to affect how a person should be treated however it is not widely accepted in the medical field. The research is beyond disputable with some of the best breakthroughs in recent times coming from attachment theory. Dan Siegal is mainly responsible for breakthroughs in this research. The psychology world looks forward to the next 5-10 years in further developing this research.
Trauma and anxiety
A traumatic event can greatly increase the symptoms of anxiety. It is in general thinking anxiety is a build of multiple events and circumastances it can also be from 1 major life event such as a death in the family or some form of highly traumtic event.

This is an attempt to try and calm the patient outside of therapy. This combined with refular therapy is thought by most to be the most effective for of therapy.
