abstract
This study will be conducted to quantify the extent to which psychotherapists, broadly defined, in the state of Wyoming use evidence-based psychotherapy procedures in the treatment of anxiety disorders. The objective of this study is to determine whether or not there is a markedly low rate of utilization of evidence-based procedures in the treatment of patients with anxiety disorders as previous studies have demonstrated. The first author will attempt to survey all currently practicing psychotherapists in Wyoming. Participants will be contacted through their professional listings and asked to participate in an interview for research purposes. If accepted, the standardized interview, modeled after that of Freiheit, Vye, Swan and Cady (2004) will be conducted via phone or in person depending on the location. The survey will ask respondents how often they use a variety of therapy techniques, both evidence-based and otherwise in the treatment of patients with anxiety disorders. Studying the dissemination of evidence-based techniques in psychotherapy is vital for the field of psychology as this information may determine future action to further the use of evidence-based procedures in the treatment of anxiety disorders. Evidence-based techniques are important to both the well-being of clients and the legitimacy of practicing psychotherapists.
