Figure F-56 is titled “Change in BDI for CBT-mixed compared with control, by type of comparator: Sensitivity analysis including studies with high risk of bias.” The figure displays a forest plot reporting weighted mean difference of BDI stratified by CBT-mixed compared to waitlist and CBT-mixed compared to usual care. The plot depicts greater reductions in BDI scores for patients treated with CBT-mixed than waitlist (10 trials, weighted mean difference −9.97, 95% CI −14.23 to −5.70, I2 = 81.9%) or usual care (2 trials, weighted mean difference −6.85, 95% CI −13.64 to −0.05, I2 = 68.5%). The overall analysis favors CBT-mixed (weighted mean difference −9.42, 95% CI −13.08 to −5.77, I2 = 80.0%).

Note: Difede et al., 2007, and Beck et al., 2009 were rated as having high risk of bias.

Timing of outcome assessment: 14 weeks (Beck, 2009), 8 to 12 weeks (Blanchard, 2003), 12 weeks (Cloitre, 2002), 4 weeks (Fecteau, 1999), 12 weeks (Foa, 2005), 9 weeks (Foa, 1999), 4.5 months (Kubany, 2003), 14 weeks (McDonagh, 2005), 5 sessions (van Emmerik, 2008), 4 to 5.5 weeks (Kubany, 2004), 12 weeks (Difede, 2007), 7 weeks (Johnson, 2011).
