This study examined the long-term effects of a psychosocial treatment for anxiety-disordered youth. Clients (N = 36) who had completed treatment 3.35 years earlier (on average) were reassessed using self- and parent-report instruments as well as structured diagnostic interviews. Results indicated that previously documented treatment gains were maintained. An examination of participants' recalled events within therapy suggested that the therapeutic relationship, games and activities, and discussion of problems were salient treatment components. Theoretically important components of treatment were also recalled by clients, and some were found to be related to long-term positive outcome.
