Illness anxiety disorder is characterized by preoccupation with having or developing a serious illness accompanied by maladaptive safety or avoidance behavior that impairs the persons everyday functioning. It deteriorates the quality of life of the individual. Cognitive behavior therapy is often a good treatment choice. Here, I present the efficacy of rational emotive behavior therapy in addressing the irrational beliefs of the client and its effectiveness in alleviating behavioral and cognitive symptoms of illness anxiety.
