Phenomenology of bowel/bladder-control anxiety

Volume 1 of this thesis is presented in three parts. Part 1 is a systematic review of Internet-based cognitive behavioural therapy for social anxiety disorder, which includes an objective assessment of study quality. Part 2 describes two studies exploring bowel/bladder-control anxiety (BBCA). Study 1 is an Internet-based survey to obtain initial clinical and demographic details about BBCA and study 2 uses postal questionnaires to explore the relationship of BBCA with panic attacks. This is a joint thesis as it forms part of a larger project and was conducted alongside that of another Trainee Clinical Psychologist. Part 3 is a critical appraisal of the research process, which considers implications of the conceptualisation of BBCA for the research project as well as multiple testing and advertising. It further discusses issues of conducting research and delivering psychological therapy via the Internet.
