Abstract
The purpose of the study was to examine the effects of imagery rescripting in clients aged 13-17 with social anxiety disorder. Research has shown that imagery rescripting, as an intervention has a major impact on emotions and as a primary treatment for example, PTSD has proven very promising. In two studies, one exploratory and the other a pilot study, the authors described the procedure of imagery rescripting and concluded after a preliminary examination that the method can be useful in treating the unpleasant early memory linked to negative selfimages in the treatment of social anxiety disorder.

This study was carried out as a onesession treatment of 18 participants meeting diagnostic criteria for social anxiety disorder according to... (More)

This study was carried out as a onesession treatment of 18 participants meeting diagnostic criteria for social anxiety disorder according to DSMIV, which according to chance was allocated to the treatment group and the control group. The results showed that imagery rescripting has a significantly reducing effect on anxiety concerning early negative childhood memories. Also the effects were not immediate, but at the time for the next assessment seven days later, the difference was significant. One conclusion of the study is that imagery rescripting seems less effective for adolescents than for adults. (Less)

Syftet med vår studie var att undersöka effekter av imagery rescripting hos patienter i åldern 13-17 år med social ångeststörning. Forskning har visat att imagery rescripting som intervention har stor genomslagskraft på emotioner och har som primär behandlingsmetod vid t.ex. PTSD visat sig vara mycket lovande. I två studier, en explorativ och den andra en pilotstudie beskrev författarna proceduren med imagery rescripting och konstaterade efter en preliminär prövning att metoden kan vara ett användbart hjälpmedel för att behandla obehagliga minnesbilder kopplade till negativa självbilder vid behandling av social ångeststörning

Forskning har visat att imagery rescripting som intervention har stor genomslagskraft på emotioner och har som primär behandlingsmetod vid t.ex. PTSD visat sig vara mycket lovande. I två studier, en explorativ och den andra en pilotstudie beskrev författarna proceduren med imagery rescripting och konstaterade efter en preliminär prövning att metoden kan vara ett användbart hjälpmedel för att behandla obehagliga minnesbilder kopplade till negativa självbilder vid behandling av social ångeststörning

Denna studie genomfördes med en ensessionsbehandling av 18 deltagare som uppfyllde diagnoskriterierna för social ångeststörning enligt DSM-IV, vilka enligt slumpen fördelas till behandlingsgrupp och kontrollgrupp. Resultaten visade att imagery rescripting har en signifikant reducerande effekt på ångest kopplad till tidiga negativa minnesbilder från barndomen. Effekten var inte omedelbar, men blev tydlig först vid mätning en vecka efter interventionen. En slutsats av studien är att imagery rescripting inte har lika tydlig effekt på ungdomar som på vuxna.
