Abstract
Affective processes are critical to understanding and promoting lasting the rapeutic change. Using a sample of 40 anxious adults, the researchers exami ned the use of music to increase affective modification and emotional restr ucturing in a cognitive reframing intervention. Subjects were assigned to e ither a typical reframing intervention or a music-assisted reframing interv ention. Using the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, Subjective Units of Distre ss Scale, Depression Adjective Checklist, and a Think-Aloud measure, the gr oups were compared on basis of anxiety-reduction, affective modification, a nd imagery vividness. Results indicate that the music-assisted reframing in tervention was more efficacious than the typical reframing intervention in reducing anxiety, modifying affect, and promoting imagery-vividness.
