explaination form kaplan free 150
"Panic disorders are characterized by episodes of intense fear and
discomfort and possibly palpitations, abdominal distress, sweating, and chest pain. This can be a
crippling disorder for the patient. Patients are often worked up for heart attacks. Cognitive behavioral
therapy is aimed finding, addressing, and resolving potential triggers.
The patientís problem is not one of assertiveness (choice A), but anxiety.
Dynamic psychotherapy (choice C) explores patient relationships with oneself and others.
Psychoanalysis (choice D) is an involved analysis into the psyche. It is not designed for panic attacks.
Psychodrama (choice E) is a group therapy modality"
