|- Brief summary||Internet-based guided selp-help seems just as effective as cognitive-behavioural treatment given to patients with phobias (s). In this pilot trial we want to treat patients who are waiting for cognitive-behavioural therapy in a specialised mental health care institute with the guided self-help. We expect the patients to evaluate the treatment as feasible and satifying. |
Furthermore we expect a decrease in anxiety and we aspire to get some insight in (cost) effectiviness.
