Conclusion: CBGT could be an effective and selective psychotherapy to improve HRQOL and degree depression and health anxiety of IBS patients, but in this therapy, in addition to automatic thoughts, we should also consider to core beliefs and underlying assumptions to enhancement the efficacy of intervention.
It was hypothesized that Cognitive-Behavior Group Therapy (CBGT) has a significant effect on the HRQOL, health anxiety and depression of IBS patients in the experimental group as compared to the control group.
The experimental group received 8 weekly CBGT sessions in the department of gastroenterology in a general Hospital in the central city (by the clinical psychologist).
Treatment: The CBGT was conducted according to Albany Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment Manual, that planned by Blanchard23 in a general hospital in the city of Isfahan, Iran.

Results indicated that both groups' symptoms were reduced; however, the CBGT participants demonstrated more substantial improvement.
A more recent study compared CBGT, phenelzine, pill-placebo, and ESG (Heimberg et al., 1998).
Two studies found the combination of CBGT and exposure therapy (ET) to be ideal in treating social phobia.
(1999) examined the effects of CBGT under the following treatment conditions for children (ages 7-12) with anxiety disorders: (a) child only, Co) parent-child, and (c) parent only (N = 62).
Twelve students who met criteria for phobic anxiety were semi-randomly (because of scheduling constraints) assigned to one of three treatments: ACT (n=3, as one student failed to show), CBGT (n=4), or a wait-list control condition (n=4).
ACT and CBGT each consisted of four 1 1/2 hour sessions held at weekly intervals.
CBGT consists of three primary components: simulated exposures to feared situations, cognitive restructuring, and homework assignments for in vivo exposure based on individualized hierarchies.
