Efficacy of Behavioral Experiments in Cognitive Therapy for Social Anxiety Disorder: Study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

Celina Clément, Jihong Lin, Ulrich Stangier
2019 Trials  
The present study investigates the question of whether enhanced training and the use of behavioral experiments (BEs) increases the efficacy of traditional CT, based on verbal methods of cognitive restructuring  ...  The present cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) trial will be the first to clarify the contribution of BEs to the efficacy of CT in a randomized controlled design.  ...  Based on previous treatment study results [34] , it is hypothesized that the outcome of participants in the BE intervention will significantly predict an active experimentation learning style, whereas  ...

To Test Machine Comprehension, Start by Defining Comprehension [article]

Jesse Dunietz, Gregory Burnham, Akash Bharadwaj, Owen Rambow, Jennifer Chu-Carroll, David Ferrucci
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Second, we present a detailed definition of comprehension -- a "Template of Understanding" -- for a widely useful class of texts, namely short narratives.  ...  We then conduct an experiment that strongly suggests existing systems are not up to the task of narrative understanding as we define it.  ...  After finetuning, the model achieves 81.75% on the original RACE task (within 5 points of the best nonensemble model at the time of the experiments).  ...
