    One of my patients actually bought this book before I did — he was already reading it when he was referred to me to assist him with panic disorder. Panic Disorder is one of the more easily resolved mental health problems a person can have. Usually, once they understand that panic arises from one of the bodies most useful processes — the fight, flight, or freeze reflex needed to save our lives when we are in a dangerous situation — they are already halfway to a cure. This reflex becomes a disorder when one misinterprets something in the environment, or a bodily sensation, as being dangerous or potentially deadly. That “thing” could be a little flip-flop of the heart, or low blood sugar.

    The misinterpretation of the event causes the body to go into action sending more blood to major muscle groups so one can either run away really fast from the danger, provide the strength needed to fight the threat, or the ability to freeze so maybe you won’t be noticed. However, when there is really no threat, what goes on in the body to prepare one to run fast, punch harder, etc., — increased heart rate, faster breathing, etc. — can be misinterpreted as “I’m dying” or “I’m going to pass out”. If one is in a public space, the thought of passing out in front of strangers just increases the panic.

    As the fear of panic attacks in public spaces grows, the person may become more avoidant until, one day, s/he decides it’s better to just stay home. Now, it’s diagnosable as a Panic Disorder. Eventually, s/he avoids going out at all.

    So, the disorder is based on a phantom — fear. Dr. Burns’ book explains all this and more… and provides useful exercises for curing the disorder. Bonus? The cost of this book is probably less than one copay to see a qualified psychotherapist!

    Lots of great advice for managing anxiety. Almost a little overwhelming with the number of approaches, but the appendix give advice on how to choose options that may be the most helpful. It is geared towards the general public reader – you don’t need a background in counseling or psychology to understand it.
