The therapy lasted 33 sessions. It consisted of a groupt of cognitive-behaviourist tecniques. The ones that seemed to be the most successful were the exposure with prevention of response, cognitive restructuration and coping skills training. The results of the intervention assessed with pretest and postest mensurements, as well as other clinical indicatives showed the remission of the symptoms and a significant improvement of the patient.
