|Abstract:||Cognitive-behavioral therapy, as well as therapy based on exposure, are effective procedures in treating phobias. in the present paper, a brief protocol that includes both procedures was proposed and tested in subjects who presented fear symptoms of public speaking, one of the most prevalent fear symptoms, particularly in college students. After the procedure, 15-month follow-up, a significant improvement was observed. These results suggest that the brief protocol used in this experiment may be effective in relieving this kind of fear and represents evident advantages over longer methods of training or treatment.
