Anxiety Therapy For Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Is there an effective anxiety therapy for generalized anxiety disorder?
If you are looking for the most efficacious psychological GAD treatment, Task Forces from both the American and Canadian Psychological Associations have established that cognitive behaviour therapy for GAD has received the most scientific support. How can anxiety therapy for GAD help to overcome generalized anxiety disorder?
- A review of 332 studies showed that 75-90% of adults receiving cognitive behaviour therapy for GAD do better than people not receiving this type of anxiety therapy for generalized anxiety disorder (Butler et al., 2006).
Those people receiving cognitive behaviour therapy for GAD achieve a decrease in their symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder, as well as in pathological worry (Ladouceur et al., 2000). Thus, therapy for anxiety that targets generalized anxiety disorder can help overcome GAD.
Changes in intolerance of uncertainty, a central objective in GAD treatment, has been shown to decrease with anxiety therapy as the symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder also decrease (Ladouceur et al., 2000).
Anxiety therapy for GAD can help in the long-term treatment of GAD. When measured at a two-year follow-up, 95% of people still do longer meet criteria for generalized anxiety disorder (Dugas et Al., 2003).
