A Preliminary Evaluation of a Home-based, Computer-delivered Attention Training Treatment for Anxious Children Living in Regional Communities
Many children with anxiety disorders live in communities with limited access to treatment. Attention bias modification training, a promising computer-based treatment for anxiety disorders, may
Efficacy and mechanisms underlying a gamified attention bias modification training in anxious youth: protocol for a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
An enhanced ABMT to target the attentional bias towards threat, in addition to classic CBT for anxiety disorders in youth, is proposed, which integrates the modified dot-probe task used in previous studies and is embedded in an engaging game to foster motivation and adherence.
attentional bias modification training targeting anxiety and depression in unselected adolescents
Based on information processing models of anxiety and depression, we investigated the efficacy of multiple sessions of online attentional bias modification training to reduce attentional bias and
Online Attention Bias Modification in Combination With Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy for Children and Adolescents With Anxiety Disorders: A Randomised Controlled Trial
TLDR
Online ABM combined withCBT does not show different efficacy compared with online ACC with CBT for children and adolescents with anxiety disorders, and continuous decrease across time in primary and secondary outcomes is shown.
Reducing Pediatric Anxiety through Training: an Integrative Neurocognitive Approach
Purpose of ReviewNeurocognitive interventions that target specific cognitive mechanisms underlying anxiety symptoms (e.g., attention bias to threat, negatively biased interpretations) have been
Efficacy of Attention Bias Training for Child Anxiety Disorders: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
A double-blind, randomized controlled trial testing ABM efficacy versus an attention control condition (CC) in 31 children diagnosed with anxiety disorder indicates that significantly more youth in the ABM versus CC group were considered treatment responders post training, lending support for the potential of ABM in reducing youth anxiety.
A School-Based Comparison of Positive Search Training to Enhance Adaptive Attention Regulation with a Cognitive-Behavioural Intervention for Reducing Anxiety Symptoms in Children
TLDR
Teachers reported higher post-intervention social-emotional functioning in Year 5 students receiving the CBI but, unexpectedly, lower post-Intervention functioning in students receiving PST, which is partially consistent with hypotheses.

TLDR
ABM, compared with two control conditions, reduces pediatric anxiety symptoms and severity and further study of efficacy and underlying mechanisms is warranted.

Threat bias in attention orienting: evidence of specificity in a large community-based study
TLDR
The association between internalizing symptoms and biased orienting varies with the nature of developmental psychopathology, and both the form and severity of psychopathology moderates threat-related attention biases in children.
Neural plasticity in response to attention training in anxiety
TLDR
The ERP data suggest that attention training modulates top-down processes of attention control rather than processes of early attention orienting, and affects anxious participants whereas non-anxious participants seem not to respond to it.
