Blanes, Tomas; Raven, Peter

Abstract

Developments in the psychological treatment for panic disorder are reviewed.Research has focused on the comparison of different psychological techniques and of these techniques with medication. Interest in the predictors of treatment outcome, particularly depression and personality disorder, has generated some interesting studies. Resistance to behaviour therapy caused by concurrent use of benzodiazepines and the role of psychological treatment as an aid for benzodiazepine discontinuation in panic disorder have also captured the attention of researchers.
