A Comparison of Implosive Therapy and Systematic Desensitization in the Treatment of Test Anxiety
Smith, Ronald E.; Nye, S. Lee
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 41, 1, 37-42, Aug 73
Both Desensitization and implosive therapy resulted in significant decreases in scores on Sarason's Test Anxiety Scale. However, the desensitization group also demonstrated a significant reduction in state anxiety assessed during simulated testing sessions and a significant increase in grade point average, while the implosive therapy group showed no improvement on these dependent variable measures.
