This presentation was originally reviewed on May 3, 2023, and broadcast live online on May 5, 2023, from 1:00 PM- 2:30 PM ET.
The views and opinions expressed by this presenter in this lecture are their own, and do not represent the views of Sheppard Pratt.
Panic Disorder presents in nearly 3% of the U.S. population in a given 12-month period (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). Often, people mistake the symptoms of panic for another catastrophic physical condition, and it is the most common reason for seeking treatment at the emergency room for noncardiac chest pain (Dark et al., 2016). Those who suffer with panic disorder often feel as if the experience comes out of nowhere and is out of their control. This workshop will focus on expanding knowledge on helping clients better identify and respond to panic symptoms and applying the most effective treatment strategies and tactics for panic.
This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals.
After this lecture, registrants will be able to:
- Recognize the common symptoms of a panic attack.
- Identify how to demystify the panic cycle with your clients.
- Apply the most effective non-pharmacological treatment approaches for panic disorder.
There is no commercial support for this activity.
