Attachment issues are viewed by many therapists as lying at the heart of couple distress. It is critical to 
empirically validate therapy processes that facilitate couples in responding to each other’s attachment needs. 
This study examined enactments as a therapy process and change mechanism to promote secure attachment in 
couple therapy. Sixteen couples were randomly assigned to 1 of 2 experimental groups-1 group received 3 
therapist-centered sessions followed by 3 enactment-based sessions, and a second group received 3 enactment-
based sessions followed by 3 therapist-centered sessions. To measure between-session and within-session 
change, each spouse completed pre-session and post-session measures of attachment security each week.

The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of ABC on adaptive functioning in high school males. 
Specifically, a pretest/posttest, experimental design (
N
= 46; Caucasian = 26, Hispanic = 20) was used to 
examine the changes in adaptive and maladaptive functioning in ABC participants (
n
= 21) compared to those 
in a control/waitlist group (
n
= 25) as measured by the Behavior Assessment System for Children, second 
edition (BASC-2). Participants randomly assigned to the treatment group engaged in 10 ABC sessions. In order 
to better understand group process in ABC, I had experimental group participants complete the Group Climate 
Question Short form (GCQ-S) three times during the intervention.

The efficacy of using music in children of divorce groups:  Impact on anxiety, depression, and irrational beliefs about divorce.  Group Dynamics: Theory, Research, And  Practice ,  11 (4), 272-282. doi:10.1037/1089-2699.11.4.272 This study examined the efficacy of a children of divorce group using music as an intervention in comparison to  a more traditional psychoeducational children of divorce group. It was predicted that children of divorce groups  that utilized music would have a significantly greater impact on the children's levels of anxiety, depression, and  irrational beliefs about divorce after the group ended and at a 3-month follow-up assessment. Both interventions  significantly decreased cognitive and social anxiety and all irrational beliefs about divorce, except hope of  reunification. Depression did not decrease for all participants but when the relationship between depression and  irrational beliefs was examined, irrational beliefs were found to be mediators of depression for children of  divorce. These results suggest that current interventions for children of divorce do decrease anxiety and  irrational beliefs in general, but specifically addressing irrational beliefs may also decrease depressive  symptoms. 1.   What kind of research design is this? 2.   Identify the treatment variables. 3.   How many groups are there?  4.   What statistical method should be used? 5.   Interpret these results: Anxiety · Comparing anxiety score across treatment conditions:  F (3, 130) = 2.037,  p = .112. · Comparing anxiety scores over time (pretest, posttest, and 3-month follow-up):   F (6, 127) = 3.77, p = .002 · Comparing interaction of treatment and time on Anxiety scores:  F (6, 127) = 0.487,  p = .817.  Irrational Beliefs About Divorce · Comparing irrational belief scores across treatment conditions:  F (6, 117) = 0.604,  p = .727.  · Comparing interaction of treatment and time on irrational belief scores:  F (12, 111) = 0.988,  p = .465.  · Comparing irrational belief scores over time (pretest, posttest, and 3-month follow-up):  F (12, 111) =  5.667,  p = .001.

This study provides preliminary evidence of the effectiveness of the Alcohol, Smoking, and Substance 
Involvement Screening 
Test
(ASSIST) and ASSIST-linked brief intervention in a college mental health clinic. 
Data are from a single group, pre-post evaluation study (2006-2009) at a university 
counseling
center. Students 
deemed to be at risk for substance use problems were offered the ASSIST and the ASSIST-linked brief 
intervention. Staff therapists administered the ASSIST and intervention as part of routine care; 453 students 
(ages 18-24) participated in the evaluation and completed baseline and six-month follow-up interviews. 
Changes in alcohol and marijuana use were examined.

Psychosocial Risk Factors of Depression in Pregnancy: A Survey Study.  Health Science  Journal ,  9 (1), 1-6. Investigation of the evidence regarding the association between personality trait and antenatal depression is  poor while the evidence regarding marital support, social support and antenatal depression is contradictive. The  purpose of the present study was to investigate the predictive value of trait anxiety, social support and marital  support on antenatal depression. The study (running in 2011) involved 165 pregnant women undergoing  antenatal screening in a public clinic of Athens. Basic demographic and medical information included: age,  gestational age, parity, previous miscarriages, previous deliveries, complications during previous pregnancy and  labour, previous infertility problems and previous in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment, marital status, 
educational level, economic level, and employment status. The educational level was categorized as low (up 
through elementary school), medium (high school certificate) or high (university degree).
