Youth social functioning interacts with treatment arm, diagnosis, and gender to predict anxiety treatment outcome
Behav Res Ther. 2022 Jul 6;156:104160. doi: 10.1016/j.brat.2022.104160. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTResearch has uncovered a wide range of predictors of youth anxiety treatment outcome (i.e., symptom severity and diagnostic remission). Youth's social functioning is one predictor that has been rarely studied, however, which is a significant gap given its importance to development and clinical functioning. We address this gap by examining two aspects of youth's social functioning as predictors of anxiety treatment outcome: (1) positive social interactions and (2) social skills. We further examined the moderating roles of t...

Dampening of positive affect and depression: A meta-analysis of cross-sectional and longitudinal relationships
Behav Res Ther. 2022 Jul 12;156:104153. doi: 10.1016/j.brat.2022.104153. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDampening responses to positive affect have been posited to confer vulnerability to depression, but longitudinal studies have not consistently shown dampening tendencies to predict follow-up depression. The cross-sectional, longitudinal, and cross-lagged relationships between dampening and depression were determined using meta-analytic methods. A systematic literature search of the PsycINFO and PubMed databases supplemented by Google Scholar yielded 60 samples suitable for inclusion in the cross-sectional analyses and 12 ...

The role of parental anxiety symptoms in the treatment of childhood social anxiety disorder
In conclusion, we did not find clear indications that parental anxiety symptoms explain the differences in treatment outcomes for children with a primary social anxiety disorder compared to children with other primary anxiety disorders. More research with larger samples is needed to draw stronger conclusions.PMID:35863242 | DOI:10.1016/j.brat.2022.104157 (Source: Behaviour Research and Therapy)

Evolving an idionomic approach to processes of change: Towards a unified personalized science of human improvement
Behav Res Ther. 2022 Jul 3;156:104155. doi: 10.1016/j.brat.2022.104155. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe wide variety of "third wave" cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) methods (e.g., Acceptance and Commitment Therapy or "ACT", Compassion Focused Therapy, Meta-Cognitive therapy, Functional Analytic Therapy, Dialectic Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy) have left a mark on the field that appears to be growing. As ACT enters its 40th year, the present paper examines key features of its development strategy as a ground from which to consider the future of CBT and evidence-based therapy. We discuss four key...

Jumping back onto the giants' shoulders: Why emotional memory should be considered in a network perspective of psychopathology
Behav Res Ther. 2022 Jul 8;156:104154. doi: 10.1016/j.brat.2022.104154. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTClinical psychology finds itself with a paradox: On the one hand, there is abundant empirical evidence showing that aversive experiences increase the risk for psychopathology. In fact, a learning and memory framework forms the foundation of numerous psychological theories and treatments. For example, various CBT approaches aim to target maladaptive emotional memories (e.g., schemas or cognitions) that are deemed to lie at the core of mental health conditions. On the other hand, a new approach - the network theory - is gain...
