Cognitive - Behavioral Interventions in Depressive - Anxiety Disorder Case Study

Neaga Susanu


In this paper I used methods specific to cognitive-behavioural psychotherapy in solving a case of depressive-anxiety disorder with panic attacks. Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is a form of problem-focussed psychotherapy, with obvious results centred on ameliorating or curing neuropsychotic (nervous diseases) or psychosomatic symptoms (relating to the mental origin of certain diseases). After a nine-seat sessions, the patient's condition is greatly improved, panic attacks decreased as frequency and intensity. I have noticed in my patient's evolution that depressive symptomatology has been reduced by reducing the anxiety symptoms. I told him that there might be panic attacks, but that this is irrelevant to the idea of ​​reoccurrence of the anxiety disorder. It is good to interpret the possible panic attack as an event from which to learn something - to analyze it, to think about what it has caused.
