Abstract
This is an explorative qualitative study of a cognitive-behavioural
group treatment (CBT) with seven young women within the
framework of a larger project. The project’s main objective was to get
participants to start working or studying. The function of our particular
treatment program was to help the participants reach this goal. Group
CBT treatment included psychoeducational components as well as
methods derived from applied behavioral analysis and elements of
Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT). The CBT was also
combined with separate mindfulness exercises in order to further
strengthen the participants’ ability to cope with discomfort. The
participants filled in the Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) and Beck

combined with separate mindfulness exercises in order to further
strengthen the participants’ ability to cope with discomfort. The
participants filled in the Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) and Beck
Depression Inventory (BDI) at the first session, after eight sessions and
16 weeks after the start of treatment. They also responded to an
evaluation questionnaire at the start and end of each individual session.
A change was noted in regards to their outlook on the future and in
each individual’s level of activity which can be seen as increased
social interaction, work, studies and regular physical exercise. The
self-rating scales also indicated a clear positive change for several
participants, after eight weeks and after completed treatment. One
problem was the participants’ irregular attendance. Results from the
study must be interpreted restrictively as our treatment program was
only one part of a larger project and this project was still ongoing when
this paper was written, though our treatment was completed. (Less)
