Für das Buch „Angst – was hilft wirklich?“ habe ich tausende Studien zum Thema Angsttherapie unter die Lupe genommen. Im Video werden die drei (aus meiner Sicht) spannendsten und überraschendsten Forschungsgebiete vorgestellt:

1. Gedächtnisrekonsolidierung
2. Angstimmunisierung durch Beobachtungslernen
3. Metakognitive Therapie
