[Efficiency of psychotherapeutic methods in childhood asthma].An Esp Pediatr. 1993 May; 38(5):417-21.AE
The present study shows that the psychological interventions improve the results obtained with the traditional medical treatment in the management of asthmatic patients. A sample of 39 asthmatic children was selected. There was a significant improvement of the variables considered (emergency department consultations, number of acute episodes and days of illness), after psychological therapies were applied. We conclude that psychological interventions can be a useful complementary treatment of the results obtained with the pharmacological therapeutic.
