Linden Method Independent Trial Results

Linden Method Independent Trials Results concluded that The Linden Method’s curative outcomes demonstrated conclusively that the program produces curative results far in excess of alternative treatment methods and therapies.

This means that The Linden Method is 100% effective at reducing anxiety and just under 100% effective at returning sufferers to normal anxiety levels.

The Linden Method reduces anxiety from 18.28 (Severe) to 2.84 (Normal)

Using the *GAD-7 scale, subjects recorded an average rating of 18.28, severe anxiety, prior to starting The Linden Method program.

After using The Linden Method, subjects recorded an average score of 2.84, normal anxiety levels.

The trial coordinators concluded that The Linden Method is highly effective at eliminating anxiety disorders.

Results observed during the trial

The mean pre- and post-treatment scores for participants in the study were 18.28 and 2.84 respectively.

This indicates, that a large percentage of participants, had severe anxiety problems before entering the treatment programme.

In contrast, post-treatment results indicate, that for the majority of participants, anxiety no longer presented as a major issue in their day to day life.

From the frequency distributions, it is interesting to note, that a large proportion of participants pre-treatment, had a score on the GAD-7 inventory >18, corresponding to severe anxiety, whereas post-treatment a large proportion of participants fell in the category of minimal anxiety problems (score <5).

A Wilcoxon signed-rank test showed, that adhering to the Linden Method programme for anxiety elimination, resulted in a highly significant change in the level of anxiety distress, when levels were compared pre- and post treatment, with the post-treatment group reporting less anxiety symptoms (Z= -6.802, p < .001).
