Abstract

Volume I of this thesis is concerned with the effects of psychotherapy on the human brain. A literature review provides a critical evaluation of brain imaging studies that attempted to identify how neural processing changes in patients after having received cognitive-behavioural therapy for an anxiety disorder. The research paper reports the findings of a randomised controlled trial that investigated how the brain’s threat processing mechanisms changed after patients received cognitive behavioural therapy for their panic disorder.
Volume II contains five clinical practice reports (CPRs). CPR1 is a case formulation of a patient with obsessivecompulsive symptoms. Two conceptually different formulations of his presentation are proposed. One is based on cognitive-behavioural principles, the other within a psychodynamic framework. CPR2 is a single-case experimental design. It evaluates whether CBT led to a statistically robust improvement for a patient with panic disorder. CPR3 presents a case study of an ex-military serviceman who received CBT for posttraumatic stress disorder. CPR4 evaluates a provider of neurorehabilitation services on its adherence to national guidelines on depression. CPR5 was an oral presentation of the case of a fourteen-year-old girl who received CBT for obsessive-compulsive disorder. Its abstract is reproduced in the present volume.
