Course Description: It is unclear whether psychological anxiety treatments specifically designed to target repetitive negative thinking are more effective at reducing repetitive negative thinking than other types of treatments. The present study sought to investigate this question by conducting a meta-analysis of research methodology. The meta-analysis included 46 randomized studies with a total of 3,194 participants. Participants were required to have a prior anxiety diagnoses or elevated anxiety related symptoms, and the studies had to include an active anxiety treatment intervention and a control group. Each of the studies included a measure of repetitive negative thinking, regardless of whether the intervention specifically targeted repetitive negative thinking. Interventions that focused on repetitive negative thinking were equally effective as other types of psychological interventions for anxiety when it came to reducing repetitive negative thinking and anxiety symptoms. Additional studies are warranted using formal mediation methodology to verify whether reductions in repetitive negative thinking mediates the relationship between repetitive negative thinking focused cognitive therapy and subsequent reductions in anxiety.
