The Autonomy study aims to document the (cost-)effectiveness of autonomy group therapy compared to CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) treatment for anxiety disorders. This study is conducted at GGZ inGeest.
Autonomy strengthening therapy aims to increase self-management and seems to be effective in reducing anxiety disorders. However, this has not yet been proved scientifically. Patients with an anxiety disorder as their main diagnosis will be randomised either in the autonomy group or the cognitive behavioural therapy group.
