Thereport was published this week inJAMA Psychiatry.“The results of our analysis suggest that psychotherapy delivered in a group format may generally result in better outcomes than when delivered individually,” wrote Xinyu Zhou, Ph.D., of Chongqing Medical University in China and colleagues. The benefit “may be attributed to the additional expo sure of social stimuli and intera...

AbstractOne of the most commonly employed cognitive-behavioural approaches to psychotherapy is rational-emotive behaviour therapy, but researchers have been troubled by some of the limitations of irrational beliefs psychometrics. As a result, Turner et al. (Eur J Psychol Assess 34:174 –180,2018a. developed the Irrational Performance Beliefs Inventory (iPBI), a novel measure of irrational beliefs for use within performance domains. However, the linguistic and cross-cultural adaptation of the iPBI into other languages is necessary for its multinational and multicultural use. Th...

Background: Low adherence to recommended treatments is a multifactorial problem for patients in rehabilitation after myocardial infarction (MI). In a nationwide trial of internet-delivered cognitive behavior therapy (iCBT) for the high-risk subgroup of patients with MI also reporting symptoms of anxiety, depression, or both (MI-ANXDEP), adherence was low. Since low adherence to psychotherapy leads to a waste of therapeutic resources and risky treatment abortion in MI-ANXDEP patients, identifying early predictors for adherence is potentially valuable for effective targeted care. Objectives: The goal of the research was to u...

In this study, we investigated diagnosis and movement quantity as predictors of nonverbal synchrony. The naturalistic analysis sample consisted of 173 videotaped sessions of patients with a depressive disorder (N  = 68) or an anxiety disorder (N = 25), who were treated with cognitive behavioral therapy at an outpatient clinic in southwest Germany. Therapy videos were routinely collected and nonverbal synchrony was computed using motion energy analysis (MEA). Using multilevel modeling, we first investigat ed the influence of diagnosis and time of assessment on patient and therapist movement quantity. Sec...
