In this hour, we will describe the main symptoms associated with anxiety, panic and fear and look at both the productive and debilitating impact that these experiences have on us. Our speaker will share his personal struggles with panic and how his healing journey led him to create a highly effective treatment model that has changed his life and the lives of his clients. We will discuss why people grapple with these emotional states and how they influence our thoughts, feelings and behavioral choices. We will learn about differences between men and women as they experience panic, and whether age or other demographics are factors. As we explore the specific treatment approaches that are most effective, we will also discuss the responses that are the least effective and inadvertently wind up adding to and prolonging our discomfort.
