Abstract

Hypothesized that 21 test-anxious male undergraduates could learn to redirect their attention to the task, and away from the internal stimulation resulting from anxiety, through observation of a model succesfully coping with anxiety and through subsequent role playing of such behavior. Results indicate that the treatment was effective in modifying test anxiety, and that the treated Ss experienced success in relabeling their arousal and in redirecting this arousal to task-oriented behavior.
