Giarratano, Leah, GP management of health-related anxiety: application and evaluation of a brief cognitive behavioural training proram, Doctor of Psycology(Clinical) thesis, Department of Psychology, University of Wollongong, 2005. http://ro.uow.edu.au/theses/2139
This thesis examined the psychological profile of a group of patients experiencing healthrelated anxiety presenting to doctors in general medical practice. It also evaluated the effects of a brief cognitive behavioural training program for GPs, both in terms of the program's impact upon these patients, and upon their general practitioners' (CPs') knowledge and confidence to use the techniques imparted.
