Self-guided mindfulness and cognitive behavioural practices reduce anxiety in autistic adults: A pilot 8-month waitlist-controlled trial of widely available online tools. Autism24(4), 867–883. https://doi.org/10.1177/1362361320909184

Course Description: Anxiety is very prevalent within autistic populations. Roughly 40-50% of individuals with Autism are classified as also having an anxiety disorder. It is an important treatment target because of its consequences for quality of life and well-being.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness-Based Therapy (MBT) have been found to reduce anxiety in these individuals, however the most effective methods for delivery of treatment remains in question. The current study investigates whether online-based CBT and MBT can be used as a plausible treatment tool to help ameliorate anxiety symptoms in individuals with Autism.  The results of this study show that online-based behavioral therapy may be a feasible and cost-effective option for delivering mental health support to adults with Autism.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the central aim of the study and the methods related to anxiety treatment in autistic patients
  2. Examine the benefit of online-delivered behavioral therapy in reducing anxiety levels and other mental health outcomes
  3. Assess whether online CBT/MBT tools will influence changes in autistic variables over time
