Background & Aim: The importance of this research considering the consequences of anxiety disorders on the one hand and the cognitive processes and symptoms of panic disorder on the other hand, by comparing and then using the appropriate and accurate transcranial electrical stimulation intervention and transcognitive therapy, trying to improve these consequences. The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of transcranial electrical stimulation and metacognitive therapy on the cognitive processes of people with panic disorder.
Methods: This study was conducted using a semi-experimental method with a pre-test-post-test design on 45 people with panic disorder in 1401 in Mashhad. The research subjects were randomly assigned to three groups of 15 people with transcranial electrical stimulation and metacognitive therapy as an experimental group and a control group, and cognitive processes were measured using the questionnaire of agoraphobic cognitions and the questionnaire of panic disorder symptoms. Data analysis was done using the statistical test of analysis of covariance and with spss-24 software.
Results: The results of the study showed that by removing the effect of pre-test cognitive processes scores as a covariate, the main effect of transcranial electrical stimulation and metacognitive therapy on the cognitive processes of people with panic disorder in the post-test is significant. In other words, the results show that the observed difference between the average scores of the participants of the experimental group (-15.98) and the control group (-16.35) in terms of group membership in the post-test stage is significant with 95% confidence (p < 0.05).
Conclusion: These findings show that metacognitive therapy has a greater effect on reducing cognitive processes
