Computer-assisted cognitive behavioral therapy for child anxiety: results of a randomized clinical trial.

A meta-analysis of the effects of internet- and computer-based cognitive-behavioral treatments for anxiety.
TLDR
There was preliminary support for the use of ICT for panic disorder and phobia and large, well-designed, placebo-controlled trials are needed to confirm and extend the results of this meta-analysis.
