Formatted abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate a cognitive-behavioural treatment program through a multiple baseline design across subjects. The participants were three adolescents presenting with anxiety disorders. Each had other specific individual needs at family and school levels, which were also addressed at a later stage of therapy. Results showed, for the three participants, marked improvement (at post-treatment and three months follow-up) of the anxiety both at overt-behavioural and cognitive levels with no negative effects on family and dyadic adjustment. Theoretical considerations and prognoses are discussed.
