The Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory (OCI) is a new self-report instrument developed to address the problems inherent in available instruments for determining the diagnosis and severity of…
A multi-session interpretation modification program: changes in interpretation and social anxiety symptoms.
Attention modification program in individuals with generalized anxiety disorder.
The authors tested the hypothesis that an 8-session attention modification program would decrease attention bias to threat and reduce symptoms of GAD and suggest that altering attention mechanisms may effectively reduce anxiety.
Attention training in individuals with generalized social phobia: A randomized controlled trial.
Results revealed that the AMP facilitated attention disengagement from threat from pre- to post assessment and reduced clinician- and self-reported symptoms of social anxiety relative to the ACC, suggesting that computerized attention training procedures may be beneficial for treating social phobia.

Attentional bias to threat in social phobia: facilitated processing of threat or difficulty disengaging attention from threat?
Empirical recommendations for improving the stability of the dot-probe task in clinical research.
Although reliability of RT bias indices was moderate to low, within-session variability in bias (attention bias variability; ABV), a recently proposed RT index, was more reliable across sessions, and several eyetracking-based indices of attention bias showed reliability that matched the optimal RT index (ABV).
