Research has shown CBT to be very effective in the treatment of a
broad spectrum of anxiety disorder symptoms. In this section I will address the following
are the different types of anxiety disorder diagnoses?
some common features of anxiety disorders?
How is CBT
used to treat anxiety
How long does
CBT treatment usually last?
Because anxiety problems vary widely, it is
difficult to say how long CBT treatment for anxiety will take; it depends
on each person’s specific symptoms. In general, CBT
is meant to be short-term and last 12-16 weeks. However,
treatment may last substantially longer if a person has a severe
form of anxiety and/or has multiple problems to address.
