  • Útdráttur er á ensku

    Attentional bias modification (ABM) is a new treatment option for anxiety that involves implicitly modifying attention away from threat-related stimuli with a computerized dot-probe task. Participants were 27 individuals with social anxiety disorder who received cognitive-behavioral group therapy (CBGT) at an outpatient anxiety treatment center. It was hypothesized, first, that adding ABM to CBGT would have a greater effect on social anxiety symptoms and attention bias (AB) compared to CBGT alone. Second, it was hypothesized that adding reward, which has been shown to influence attention on visual search tasks, to CBGT would result in greater treatment gains than CBGT. Results did not indicate that ABM or reward, or the combination of the two, added anything to the CBGT as a treatment for SAD patients. Further research on these processes is needed for a better understanding on how they work, and hopefully discover ways to find the most successful way to treat individuals suffering from SAD.
