Abstract: Fear of failure is known to have a negative influence on educational performance. About 20% of the students in higher and academic education struggles with fear of failure. Cognitive behavioural therapy has been found to be the most effective for the treatment of fear of failure. A relatively new technique to change a person’s way of thinking by modifying dysfunctional cognitive processes is cognitive bias modification (CBM). CBM can be focused on several cognitive aspects. The focus of this study is on CBM-I which aim is to teach people to interpret ambiguous situations in a more positive way. In the current study the effects of a CBM-I training on students with fear of failure was examined. The aim of the present study was to examine if participation in CBM-I training results in a decrease of fear of failure, study stress, negative interpretation bias and an increase of positive interpretation bias.
