Social Anxiety Treatment Study at Stanford University


Social Anxiety Treatment Study at Stanford University:
Quote:
We are running two randomized clinical treatment studies at Stanford University that involve providing at no charge interventions for adults with social anxiety disorder. One study offers state-of-the-art individual cognitive behavioral therapy. The other study offers either mindfulness meditation or wellness/aerobic exercise program based stress reduction. The treatment study’s goal is to better understand the mechanisms of therapeutic change and its long-term impact in individuals who suffer from social anxiety.

We are seeking people with English fluency who are right handed*, age 21-55 individuals who primarily have problems with social anxiety disorder. Because we are assessing brain function with functional magnetic resonance imaging, we can only work with participants who are not taking psychotropic medications.

If you would like more information or you have a referral, please view our website (http://waldron.stanford.edu/~caan/) and call (650-723-5977) or email us ([email protected])

*We use functional magnetic resonance imaging to look at how the brain handles emotion and emotion regulation. People who are left handed are right hemisphere dominant for language processes. Just the opposite for right-handed people. Mixing left and right handed individuals thus introduces a confound in our brain imaging studies. Thus, we need to include only right-handed individuals.

I don't think so, but for details about the study you'll want to get in contact with the researchers directly.
