Panic Disorder

Treatment for Panic Disorder at the CTSA

Therapy for panic disorder at the Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety focuses on education about panic, anxiety management techniques, exposure to feared sensations and situations, and techniques to challenge unhelpful thoughts and beliefs. Treatment sessions are held weekly. Toward the end of treatment, sessions may be held every other week to allow patients more time to practice the skills learned during therapy. In addition, we have specifically designed a program to help children suffering from this disorder.
