Project Details


In the study "Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Generalized Anxiety Disorder", the clinical effectiveness of a 25-hour cognitive therapy compared to a wait-list control group in generalized anxiety disorders is investigated. For the first time and as a model, a controlled psychotherapy trial is being conducted in collaboration with behavioral therapists in private practice. In the course of the study so far, 41 patients have been included in the treatment or waiting group. The subject of the current application for extension is, on the one hand, an extension of the recruitment and treatment phase by half a year. The main subject of the extension application is the performance of a catamnestic survey, which was planned from the beginning and is required internationally for such studies.
