Interoceptive hypersensitivity as prognostic factor among patients with panic disorder...
Full Title: Interoceptive hypersensitivity as prognostic factor among patients with panic disorder who have received cognitive behavioral therapy
The efficacy of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in the acute-phase treatment of panic disorder is well established. However, there are data to show CBT may not always be able to prevent recurrence after treatment. The central cognitive component of panic disorder psychopathology is thought to be hypersensitivity to physical sensations. The present study reports that some aspects of interoceptive hypersensitivity, gastrointestinal fears in particular, were predictive of the course of panic disorder after end of CBT. Clinically it is suggested that new interoceptive tasks related to gastrointestinal fears are needed. (c) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
