Abstract:

Volume 20, 1, 2020. To be published March 1st 2020

This systematic review examined intervention studies that used Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to treat anxiety among Latinos. PsychINFO, Social Work Abstracts, PubMed, and Medline were searched for manuscripts published between January 1995 through July 2016 as part of a registered review protocol (PROSPERO) following PRISMA guidelines. Studies were included if they were an intervention study that used CBT to treat anxiety in predominately U.S. Latino adult samples. Risk of bias was assessed using two National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute quality assessment tools. Overall, 4 studies met inclusion criteria. Results supported CBT interventions to be efficacious for Latinos with anxiety and CBT interventions with cultural adaptations to address some barriers to treatment. Limitations and implications of these results are discussed.
