Abstract:
The following thesis is comprised of three parts. Part one is the Literature Review. This section reviews relevant papers with the aim of answering the question "can we enhance Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for anxiety disorders using medication". The second part is the Empirical Paper. This details a randomised, placebo-controlled study investigating the effects of combining D-cycloserine (DCS) with cue exposure in a population of heavy social drinkers. Outcome measures of subjective craving and attentional bias are examined to assess if DCS can enhance the efficacy of cue exposure therapy in this population. The study presented in the Empirical Paper was conducted jointly with another trainee, Lydia Rodney (D.Clin.Psy, 2010). See Appendix A for further details. Finally, part three is the Critical appraisal, which includes reflections on the study presented in the empirical paper and, more broadly, on the research process in its entirety.
