Implications Generalized Anxiety Disorder is a disorder in which subjects can make great recovery and have low expectations of remission. Cognitive-behavioral therapy has proven to address all the major abnormalities within an individual’s psyche. Through therapy that deals with both thought process as well as behavior over thirty percent of subjects show significant improvement throughout all the studies examined within this article. For future studies, research psychologists should focus on expanding the subject pools because this limitation proved to hinder the accuracy of a few results within the combined treatment of medication and cognitive-behavioral therapy. Patients also looking for any type of therapy to assist with their recovery should focus on cognitive-behavioral therapy due to its clear-cut effectiveness across all these studies.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
