Course Description: Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) has been shown to have short-term benefits for youth (i.e., children and adolescents) with anxiety. Studies on the long-term benefits of CBT for this population are limited in generalizability, as they have been conducted in university clinics and have yielded mixed outcomes. The present study examined long-term outcomes among youth receiving CBT for anxiety disorders in community mental health clinics. Participants ranged in age from 8 to 15 at the outset of the study and had been diagnosed with separation anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and/or generalized anxiety disorder. Analyses conducted two to six years post-treatment revealed significant improvement in anxiety symptoms, loss of inclusion diagnoses in 53% of participants, and loss of the principal diagnosis in 63% of participants. No differences in outcomes were found between those who received individual versus group CBT. These and other results illustrate the long-term effectiveness of CBT in community mental health clinics and have implications for the use of CBT to support youth with anxiety disorders.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the rationale for the study, the CBT protocols, and the methods for gathering data on participant outcomes
  2. Describe the main findings of the study concerning the long-term effectiveness of individual and group CBT
