Overcoming a Poor Early Response with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Skills
ConclusionsOur findings extend the literature on early response predicting outcome by showing that when clients experience more limited early symptom change, outcome depends considerably on the degree to which they are learning CBT skills. For clients with greater CBT skill improvements, a relatively positive treatment outcome is still common.

AbstractThe current study aimed to test how metacognition relates to the concept of mindfulness attention awareness (MAA), whether metacognitions or MAA best predict symptoms of depression and anxiety, and whether there are significant differences between depression and anxiety levels due to metacognitions and MAA. Data were collected from a public sample through e-mails and social media platforms. The results showed that there was a moderate correlation between MAA and three of the five metacognitive subscales. Both MAA (r = 0.66) and metacognition (r = 0.64) were significantly correlated with ...
Forget everything you thought you knew about anxiety and perfectionism. Here’s an inside look at what actually works. We all feel the need to be accepted, to fit in, feel loved, and that we matter to someone or something. As someone who struggles with anxiety myself, I understand how hard it is to combat the anxiety feedback loop. As a psychologist who has worked with this material for nearly a decade, I supposedly know all the tricks in the book. I have a tool kit 10 pages deep ready to go whenever I experience a bout of anxiety. Even still, I struggle to practice what I preach. Moving beyond this feedba...
ConclusionsHighly central memories were associated with a distinct emotional experience and emotion regulation strategies. Brooding, when remembering highly central events, was robustly associated with all types of internalizing symptoms. Other emotion regulation strategies showed less consistent patterns, and emotion regulation for low centrality memories was related only to worry. Overall, the findings underscore the importance that memory centrality has for understanding emotion regulation when experiencing elevated depressive and anxiety symptoms.
The objectives of this study are to carry out a review of the smoking cessation apps that apply CBT and to describe the techniques used by them. Following the PRISMA framework, the databases EBSCOhost, Cochrane, Web of Science and Scopus were searched for publications between 2010-2019. Four hundred fifteen studies were found and, after applying the inclusion and exclusion criteria, only five articles were eligible for systematic review. Only three apps were identified as using CBT, and the techniques most commonly used were the recording of smoking history, progress visualised through graphics, psycho-educational videos, ...
