The Impact of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy on Math Anxiety in Adolescents
LaGue, April; Eakin, Gene; Dykeman, Cass
Preventing School Failure, v63 n2 p142-148 2019
In this nonconcurrent, multiple-baseline, single-subject research study, the authors conducted a preliminary exploration of whether mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) can be expanded to the treatment of math anxiety. Three high school students who were assessed with high levels of math anxiety met individually twice a week for 6 weeks with the school counselor who used a manualized MBCT treatment for anxiety as the intervention. A weekly administration of a math anxiety measurement tool showed a decrease in math anxiety for all three participants.
