Anxiety symptoms improve with flexible treatment

  • 1 Comment

A combination of cognitive behaviour therapy and medication, backed up with computer-assisted support, introduced in a primary care setting, resulted in greater improvement in common anxiety symptoms, than usual care, research has found.

The research found that flexible treatment, delivered in primary care, improved symptoms for the four most common anxiety disorders: panic disorder; general anxiety disorder, post traumatic stress disorder; and social anxiety disorder.

The research was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

  • Communication skills via group senario work with a pass or fail system at uni could be used to clarify the ambiguity of when or when not to use automomy within clinical practice. The S-BAR system is very useful although this protacol is not designed to replace iniative and rapport building. Sorry about spelling no time time to proof read and am dylexic.
