Seven adolescents received a cognitive-behavioral treatment targeting generalized anxiety disorder. The treatment consisted of awareness training, worry interventions, and relapse prevention. The worry interventions targeted specifically intolerance of uncertainty, beliefs about worry, problem solving, and cognitive avoidance. According to the Anxiety Disorders Interview Schedule for DSM-IVdiagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder, self-report questionnaire scores, and time spent worrying every day, three adolescents showed clinically significant change at post-test which was maintained at 6- and 12-month follow-up assessments. Minimal to moderate improvement was observed for other participants. Factors that may explain these differences are discussed.
