Content By: Newman, M. G., Jacobson, N. C., Erickson, T. M., & Fisher, A. J. (2017). Interpersonal problems predict differential response to cognitive versus behavioral treatment in a randomized controlled trial. Behavior Therapy, 48 (1), 56-68.

Course Description: Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is not equally effective for all patients diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). Identifying the factors that lead to heterogenous treatment outcomes can improve efforts to enhance a personalized medical approach to psychotherapy. Individuals whose interpersonal problems reflect more dominance and intrusiveness may respond differently to relaxation-based behavioral therapy compared to cognitive therapy or CBT. Findings from this randomized controlled trial suggest that GAD patients experiencing interpersonal problems may respond more positively to nontraditional treatment than to CBT. Future research is needed to develop treatment protocols that address interpersonal problems and improve outcomes for GAD symptomology.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Distinguish underlying dysfunctions across dimensions of interpersonal problems
  2. Describe similar and differing therapeutic mechanisms between cognitive therapy, behavioral therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy for GAD treatment
  3. List 2 factors that may cause patients with GAD to respond less positively to cognitive-behavioral therapy compared to nontraditional treatment approaches

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Interpersonal problems predict differential response to cognitive versus behavioral treatment in a randomized controlled trial
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Reflect on the relationship between interpersonal problems and effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral treatment in patients with generalized anxiety disorder
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand the relationship between interpersonal problems and therapeutic effectiveness for patients with generalized anxiety disorder
