The cognitive attentional syndrome: Examining relations with mood and anxiety symptoms and distinctiveness from psychological inflexibility in a clinical sample
Psychiatry Research, 10/24/2013Fergus TA, et al.
Using a clinical sample of patients with either a primary mood or anxiety disorder, the authors examined relations between the CAS and mood (depression) and anxiety (generalized anxiety, social anxiety, obsessive–compulsive, and panic) symptoms. The results broadly support the purported transdiagnostic importance of Wells's theory and indicate that intervention strategies targeting the CAS might be useful in treating certain disorders.
