About

The aim of this pilot study is to test the benefit of behavior therapy-oriented, method-integrated psychotherapy in an outpatient group setting in patients with narcolepsy type 1. Therefore we collect and evaluate initial data on its effectiveness on the disease in terms of specific symptomatology, emotion regulation, health-related quality of life, and disease processing/acceptance.
