RAMOS, Victoriano; PIQUERAS, José Antonio y GARCIA-LOPEZ, Luis-Joaquín. Efficacy and efficiency of the use of video-feedback in the cognitive-behavioral treatment of young people with social anxiety disorder. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2008, vol.19, n.2, pp.249-264. ISSN 1130-5274.
This paper shows how the increase in the use of video-feedback from four to ten sessions could improve therapy success in adolescents suffering social phobia (IAFS; Olivares y García-López, 1998; García-López, 2007a). The sample consisted of 50 high school and private school students -18 boys and 32 girls aged 14 to 18. The treatment was administered in a school setting. The design consisted of two experimental conditions: the original treatment (4 sessions including video-feedback) and a revised treatment protocol using videofeedback as a therapeutic technique in 10 out of 12 sessions. The results revealed that both experimental conditions were equally efficient, with no significant differences both at post-test and at the follow-up 6 months later. Issues that could contribute to future research and clinical implications are discussed.
