Research, published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, has looked at the effects of  Psychodynamic Therapy and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy in treating Social Anxiety Disorders.

The researchers found that both therapies were effective.

The researchers divide patients into three groups and treated each of two with one of the therapies (209;207 people) and kept the third as a control group (79).

The results showed, amongst other things, that the remission rates of people with Social Anxiety Disorder in each of the groups was; CBT treated =60%; PT treated = 52%; Control = 9%.
