Design of the study:
Experimental condition: Long-term combined treatment.
Control condition: Eclectic individual therapy.
There are several differences in the treatments being tested. Compared to the control condition the experimental treatment 1) is more extensive, 2) involves more therapeutic elements (psychodynamic, cognitive, and behaviour therapeutic techniques at the day hospital), 3) involves a long-term combination of group and individual therapy carried out according to principles described in the guidelines, 4) involves a systematic collaboration between several therapists.
