The Science
How the Attacking Anxiety & Depression Program Works
The Combatting Stress and Depression Program program is based on the principles of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a therapeutic approach to wellness that uses a systematic process to relieve negative emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.
The most fundamental principle of CBT is that changes in thought patterns lead to changes in behavior and mood. The methods of CBT help individuals challenge established thought patterns and replace negative patternssuch as chronic worry or irrational fear with more realistic and positive ones. By challenging existing thought patterns,individuals can systemtically replace poor habits with good ones, thereby significantly decreasing self-defeating behavior and emotional distress.

Independent scientific research shows that StressCenter's Combatting Stress and Depression Program program, designed specifically to treat stress, anxiety, and depression, is equally or more effective than traditional, more costly methods of treating these issues.
Six independent clinical studies have found that StressCenter's self-care and coaching programs are more effective than outpatient therapy. Some studies suggest that the Combatting Stress and Depression Program program, when paired with personal Coaching, is 2 times more effective than traditional therapy.
One study by Human Affairs International and a separate study by Group Health Cooperative both show that, at many levels of severity of anxiety or depression, patients who followed the Combatting Stress and Depression Program self-help program do significantly better than those who had completed multiple sessions of outpatient therapy.

Studies evaluating StressCenter's premium Personal Coaching services found that the average patient's OQ-45 distress score improves by a full standard deviation after just four weeks of treatment, and that the patient's condition can improve by up to two standard deviations after completion of the program.
The Combatting Stress and Depression Program program was developed by Lucinda Bassett, and her therapist Dr. Philip Fisher, MD, who leveraged the skills, methods and techniques of CBT as the core of the self-treatment process. Since 1983, the program has helped over 1 million people to recover from acute stress, anxiety, panic disorder, obsessive worry, and depression.
