This chapter highlights the process of evaluating one’s progress, maintaining progress, and relapse prevention. One can use the Your Practice Plan form to list all of the things to be practiced over the next few weeks in terms of breathing skills, thinking skills, facing agoraphobia situations, and facing symptoms. The chapter then looks at several ways to maintain the progress that one has made so far. It is helpful to anticipate the kinds of stressful events one may experience ahead of time and to prepare for them in a matter-of-fact way. A panic attack or resurgence of anxiety does not mean that one is getting worse or that one has lost all of the progress that one has gained. The most important thing to do when one has a flare-up of anxious symptoms is to repeat everything one has already done.
