The ABCs of CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy): Evidence-Based Approaches to Child Anxiety in Public School Settings
Miller, Lynn D.; Short, Christina; Garland, E. Jane; Clark, Sandra
Journal of Counseling & Development, v88 n4 p432-439 Fall 2010
This study evaluated a locally developed cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) intervention program in a public elementary school. In the prevention approach, 118 children were randomly assigned either to an 8-week intervention or to a wait-list control. Results of statistical analysis indicated that the manualized CBT intervention did not reduce symptoms of anxiety on either self-reports or parent reports of anxiety symptoms in the general school population. Challenges to translational efforts to public school settings are discussed.
