This chapter includes information on teaching patients to recognize and defer worries using problem-solving techniques, targeting the fear of somatic arousal (panic attacks, false alarms, the fear-of-fear cycle), as well as adjustments that can be made to the exercise prescription to specifically focus on panic disorder.
