This study investigated whether pre-treatment attitudes aligned with cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) (termed CBT-mindedness) predicts CBT outcome within a clinical sample of adults diagnosed with social phobia (N = 50). Pre-treatment CBT-mindedness, measured by the CBT Suitability Scale, was found to predict treatment outcome immediately and 3 months following treatment. Higher CBT-mindedness was associated with lower clinician-rated diagnostic severity and client self-reported social anxiety symptoms following CBT. CBT-mindedness predicted self-reported, but not clinician-reported severity, even when ...

Abstract Depression is undisputedly common among individuals with End-Stage Kidney Failure and associated with adverse outcomes. It is well recognized that effective treatments for depression are needed within routine dialysis care. But, are we any closer to successfully treating depression in dialysis patients? We consider this question here with respect to two common treatments, antidepressant medication and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Currently, there are limited data from randomized placebo-controlled trials regarding the acceptability and efficacy of antidepressants. CBT trials appear to show more co...

Previously, we reported a randomized placebo-controlled trial, the Qure study, showing that cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and not doxycycline, was significantly more effective than placebo in reducing fatigue severity in Q fever fatigue syndrome (QFS) patients. This follow-up study evaluates the long-term effect of these treatment regimens, 1  year after completion of the original trial.
