Resumen

KREBS, Mariana et al. Adherence to Psychotherapy in Patients With Anxiety Disorders. Psykhe [online]. 2012, vol.21, n.2, pp.133-147. ISSN 0718-2228.

The goal of this study was to detect the risk factors for adherence to psychotherapy in patients with anxiety disorders. The sample consists of 188 subjects who entered the Anxiety Disorders Program of a mental health center in Santiago, Chile during the 2005-2009 period. The variables examined were sex, socioeconomic status (SES), initial anxiety level according to the Hamilton Scale, comorbidity with depressive disorder, presence of pharmacological co-therapy, existence of prior treatments, absences from the therapeutic sessions with and without prior notice from the patient, and the therapists' expertise level. Using the x2 test, Fisher's exact test, Student's t test for independent samples and logistic regression, it was found that SES, initial anxiety level, and absences from the therapeutic sessions without prior notice from the patient were associated with adherence to psychotherapy.

Palabras clave : adherence; anxiety disorders; psychotherapy.
