Chapter 1 discusses the nature of panic disorder (PD) and agoraphobia, and covers the goals of the session (understanding the disorder, what causes it, the program and its structure, and if the program fits the patient needs). It also covers definitions, symptoms, situations that can be triggers, case studies, medical problems, unhelpful coping mechanisms, concurrent treatments and medications, homework, and self-assessment questions.
