Question: In adults with depression and/or anxiety, how effective is Cognitive Bias Modification, compared to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, in improving mood ratings?


No definite clinical implications can be made from the available evidence. There is almost no evidence that directly compare Cognitive Bias Modification (CBM) with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Only one RCT included in this BEST summary compared these two interventions, and in this study, the CBT intervention was computerised. It is apparent that more studies are needed to evaluate these types of interventions.
