While cognitive therapy and exposure therapy are both proven to be effective for panic disorder and/or agoraphobia when outcome is assenssed up to one year after treatment (Gould et al., 1995) the scientific knowledge about long-term course of these disorders is still scanty. Although several long-term outcome studies have been conducted, the quality of these studies has been questioned.
The aim is to conduct a follow-up study of patients with either panic disorder with history of agoraphobia or agoraphobia without history of panic disorder. the patients were treated in a group format at Modum Bad during the years 1989 to 1997. Four subsamples will be included in the study. Subsample 1 (76 patients treated in 1989 and 1990) received combined cognitive and psychodynamic treatment. Subsample 2 and 3 (46 patients treated in 1992 - 1993) were allocated to either cognitive therapy or guided mastery treatment. Subsample 4 (45 patients treated in 1994 - 1996) received cognitive and schema focused therapy.
In the follow-up study the participants will be requested to complete the same self report measures as they completed at intake, discharge and at previous follow-up times. the participants will also be interviewed using the SCID-I and II as they were at the previous assessments.
The present sample is relatively unique in having received pure psychosocial experimental treatments. The very long term efficacy of cognitive therapy relative to behavioural treatmetns for agoraphobia can be evaluated, and the potential moderating effects of personality disorders can be assessed.
