Figure F-29 is titled “Change in BDI for exposure therapy compared with cognitive therapy, by type of cognitive therapy.” This figure displays a forest plot reporting the weighted mean difference in BDI scores stratified by exposure therapy compared to cognitive therapy and exposure therapy compared to cognitive processing therapy. The plot depicts a greater reduction in BDI scores in patients treated with cognitive therapy (2 trials, weighted mean difference 2.75, 95% CI −1.94 to 7.43, I2 =0.0%) and cognitive processing therapy (1 trial, weighted mean difference 2.94, 95% CI −0.75 to 6.63) than exposure therapy.
