Depression & Anxiety: Transdiagnostic Psychotherapy
depression-anxiety-transdiagnostic dataset is part of the meta-analytic research domain (MARD) on psychotherapy for depression/anxiety. This MARD is part of the Metapsy project. The dataset contains study information and effect size data of transdiagnostic psychological interventions for depression and anxiety.
This dataset includes psychotherapy vs. control (
psy vs ctr) comparisons. Effect sizes are provided for depression and anxiety outcomes at post-test.
It includes one type of effect size calculation per study, giving priority to means and standard deviations at post-test, followed by change scores, binary outcomes, and other statistics.
The dataset follows the Metapsy data standard. All included information has been independently extracted two researchers. Risk of bias ratings were conducted using the Cochrane Collaboration Risk of Bias Tool (Version 1).
