Complete registryShow full item record
In this study the results for the validation of a reattributional training program applied to the fear of #ying are presented. The program is made up of 13 ($1) sessions and consists of three phases: Information; reattributional training; and the elaboration and application of the treatment designed by the patient with the help of the therapist. The program was applied to 24 patients while 24 other patients made up the waiting control group. The therapeutic success was evaluated by means of self-report scales, and by recording psychophysiological variables in a situation in which subjects viewed a video tape of a #ight. Signi"cant di!erences were obtained from the ANOVAs between experimental and control groups in all of the self-reported variables (p(0.001) and in some of the psychophysiological variables (p(0.05). The results support the e!ectiveness of the program. ( 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
