Every psychologist would like to find out the best method of treating stress and depression. The article presents research on the best way to tend to such medical issues. The ERT, or the Emotional Regulation Therapy, demonstrates significant improvement in treating anxiety, depression, life satisfaction, ruminating, worrying, and being unable to manage feelings (Mennin et al., 2018). Furthermore, the treatment ensures that there is no delayed treatment, and the patient gets a full recovery. Emotional Regulation Therapy is based on an impressive framework that affects even the sciences.
During my study on the effective methods of treating depression, anxiety, and other emotional disorders, I came across an article entitled “A randomized controlled trial of emotional therapy for generalized anxiety disorder with or without co-occurring disorder” (Mennin et al. 2018). The article provided robust evidence on the emotional disorders, control, and how anxiety can be managed when there is a co-occurring disorder.
Fifty-three diagnosed with 43% GAD with comorbid MDD were taken to through the treatment process with a (MAC, n =25) and ERT (n=28) attention control condition modified on an open trial. The treatment process took precisely nine months before any analysis of the results was done. The main goal of the treatment section was to determine the best method of stress and depression treatment.
Unlike MAC patients, ERT patients experienced a clinical and statistically significant improvement in clinical indicators of MDD and GAD, rumination, quality of life, comorbid disorder, functional impairment, metacognitive, emotional regulation, and the hypothesized mindful attentions. Moreover, these improvements showed primary outcomes where the patients subjected to ERT treatment made a full recovery. This means that ERT is a suitable treatment mechanism and points towards a productive ending for improving and treating many clinical conditions that are very complex, for example, GAD, which has a co-occurring MMD.
