Influence of Contextual Cues on the Efficacy of Desensitization and a Credible Placebo in Alleviating Public Speaking Anxiety
Slutsky, Jeffrey M.; Allen, George J.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 46, 1, 119-25, Feb 78

Desensitization reduced public speaking anxiety in both contexts, whereas the placebo was effective only in the therapeutic setting. (Author)
