When the client expresses an interest in participation, meets trial inclusion criteria e. First, most clients were recruited via advertisements and thus might not have sought treatment on their own.

Pretreatment diagnoses, both primary and comorbid, were based on consensus between the independent structured interviewers.
Trial status Training of therapists started in January 2017, and recruitment of participants began in December 2017. Evaluation of efficacy and investigation of treatment mechanisms is on-going in clinics at Kent State University and Hunter College. Hamilton, 1959; assessor severity rating; State—Trait Anxiety Inventory-Trait Version; C. Moreover, we used an additive design in the present study.

Because the present project is a feasibility study, exploratory use of the initial comparison data should help in planning a definite non-inferiority trial that could be developed as phase 2 of the present study, with further participants recruited to the two active interventions on the basis of an estimate of the numbers needed to determine definite evaluation. Things like progressive relaxation, reading, and turning off electronics at least one hour before bed can help you prepare your mind and body for rest. Statistical methods The main analysis will be performed under the direction of David Hevey.
