Internet-based treatment for panic disorder
The Internet-based treatment for panic disorder is a self-help program divided into 10 parts (modules). Each module consists of a text that you read and exercises that you do. The texts can be fairly extensive and you need to be able to carry out practical exercises on your own.
You usually have to put in an average of one hour per day in the treatment process in order to fully derive the benefit of the content.
The treatment program runs over a period of 12 weeks and during that time you will have continual contact with a psychologist via messages sent to each other over the treatment's web platform.
The psychologist answers questions and gives feedback on the assignments and exercises that you do. Every week you will fill out questionnaires about your symptoms so that the psychologist can follow your progress.
The treatment focuses on different themes:
- Information about panic disorder and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
- Registering thoughts, feelings and behaviour in anxious situations and balancing catastrophic thinking.
- Stepwise exposure to anxiety-provoking physical reactions.
- Stepwise exposure to anxiety-provoking situations, places and activities.
Through planned exposure you learn that these symptoms and situations are harmless and that the anxiety gradually reduces over time.
