Applications are described in a wide range of conditions, including, for example, depression, panic disorder, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders and addictions. Research background, clinical trials and evidence for efficacy and effectiveness are discussed and helpful case descriptions, provided.
