Panic Disorder Studies
1.5 to 3.5% of people worldwide suffer from panic disorder. The essential feature of panic disorder is the presence of recurrent, unexpected panic attacks, or rushes of acute anxiety. Panic disorder is a treatable medical condition. This study compares the effectiveness of 3 types of therapies in treating panic disorder: panic focused psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and applied relaxation therapy, all of which have been shown to be effective in treating people with panic disorder.
