CBGT consists of three primary components: simulated exposures to feared situations, cognitive restructuring, and homework assignments for in vivo exposure based on individualized hierarchies.
For the most part, scores on the SPS, FNE, and FQ decreased for participants in the ACT and CBGT conditions (indicating clinical improvement), while during the same time frame the scores for the wait-list control condition remained the same or increased.
Treatment with CBGT should produce decreased anxiety ratings if individuals indeed changed their beliefs about a situation, whereas following ACT we would expect an increased willingness to perform previously avoided behaviors, regardless of whether the anxiety level changes.
With only seven participants in the two active treatments, it would be premature to make any statements about the differential effectiveness of ACT versus CBGT.
