Treatments For Anxiety Disorder

(BlackDoctor.org) — The two most effective forms of psychotherapy used to treat anxiety disorders are behavioral therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy.

Behavioral therapy tries to change actions through techniques such as breathing exercises or through gradual exposure to what is frightening. Cognitive-behavioral therapy teaches patients to understand their thinking patterns so they can react differently to the things that cause them anxiety.
