UNC Study to analyze CBT for Perinatal Anxiety Treatment


Researchers at UNC are initiating a study to evaluate the effectiveness of CBT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for treatment of Perinatal Anxiety. You can read more about the study here.

All participants in the six-week study will receive helpful childbirth counseling as part of free weekly prenatal classes. Half of the participants will receive elements of CBT as well. Those who complete the study will also receive a modest fee at the end.

First-time pregnant women over the age of 18, and their partners, can learn more and complete a screening questionnaire online at http://www.babyprepstudy.com.

The Anxiety Disorder Clinic is part of UNC’s psychology department. In addition to engaging in studies, the department’s clinics provide low-cost therapy services to adults and children on a sliding-fee scale. They can be reached at (919) 962-6906.
