Description 28th Annual Congress of the European Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies
Anxiety disorders are characterised by distorted beliefs about the dangerousness of certain situations and/or internal stimuli. Why do such beliefs persist? Six processes (safety-seeking behaviours, attentional deployment, spontaneous imagery, emotional reasoning, memory processes and the nature of the threat representation) that could maintain anxiety-related negative beliefs are outlined and their empirical status is reviewed. Ways in which knowledge about maintenance processes has been used to develop focussed cognitive therapy programmes are described and evaluations of the eectiveness of such programmes are summarized. Finally, ways of identifying the eective ingredients in cognitive therapy programmes are discussed. # 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved. 1.
