Anyone who has ever had a panic attack will testify as to how distressing and life-changing they can be. Sometimes sufferers become so afraid of having attacks, that they begin to avoid situations where they might occur. This condition is known as agoraphobia. Fortunately, panic attacks and agoraphobia can be very effectively treated with cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Atlanta psychologist, Dr. Stan Hibbs, briefly describes his approach to treating panic attacks and agoraphobia.
