Our full-length, disorder-specific courses are rigorously tested in our research unit, Virtual Clinic, before they are released. We have treated over 2,000 patients in Virtual Clinic, using versions of the depression, panic, social phobia, GAD, OCD, and transdiagnostic courses, and have found that the courses significantly reduce anxiety and depression. Virtual Clinic is also continually involved in a range of research projects investigating the nature, causes and treatment of anxiety disorders.
