Barlow's cognitive-behavioral approach to treating panic disorder has been supported by quite a few efficacy studies. In order to determine if the results observed in efficacy studies apply to real-life clinical practice, Wade, Treat, and Stuart (1998) compared the results of CBT for panic disorder provided in a CMHC setting with the results of two efficacy studies. The subjects were 110 clients with a primary diagnosis of panic disorder with or without agoraphobia; clients were not excluded from the study on the basis of medication use, severity, age, or presence of agoraphobia. Noteworthy results include:
Wade, W. A., Treat, T. A., & Stuart, G. L. (1998). Transporting an empirically supported treatment for panic disorder to a service clinic setting: A benchmarking strategy. Journal of Clinical and Consulting Psychology, 66, 231-239.
