Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) may be greatly beneficial to those individuals suffering from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). A new study recently published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology appears to confirm these findings. CBT was used in a control group of adults seeking treatment for GAD. Another group was treated with applied relaxation techniques (AR). Post-treatment follow-up showed that CBT was much more effective on reducing anxiety than AR even though the number of hours per day spent worrying was about the same for each group. The researchers concluded that CBT was a better way to treat symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder.
