Self-confidence Group Psychological Intervention of College Students Based on EEG Test Technology - Take Patients with Social Anxiety Disorder as an Example

Xia Hong


In order to verify whether the self-confidence group psychological intervention therapy can effectively alleviate psychiatric and neuropathy diseases, this paper takes the college students with social anxiety disorder as the research object and uses the brain evoked potential instrument-P300 detection technology as the research tool to conduct comparative analysis of the latency and amplitude of each P300 index between patients with social anxiety and normal people. At the same time, the self-confidence group psychological intervention plan is designed to perform intervention treatment on the patients with social anxiety to comprehensively investigate the effect of the self-confidence group psychological intervention on relieving the symptoms of patients with social anxiety. The results of the study show that there is a significant change in the latency of P300 indexes in patients with social anxiety disorder after the self-confidence group psychological intervention, which has a certain effect on the improvement of patients' cognitive function. The research in this paper is of great significance to further applying the self-confidence group psychological intervention therapy to the treatment of emotional disorders.
