But I have my agents everywhere. So thank you, Agent I! Here is an initiative that is probably reasonable: a web-based Cognitive-Behavioural Treatment. The idea is that a lot of the suffering and handicap comes no ... Read on »
Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy: The Most Effective Approach to Curing Anxiety/ Panic Disorder by David M. Patient Expert Posted Mon 09 Nov 2009 4:40am Cognitive-behavioural Therapy (CBT) is differently understood today than how it was perceived in the 1970's and 1980's.
