It is common to become anxious in situations such as job interviews, exams, or a public speaking engagement. For some, however, anxiety symptoms become so severe and persistent that they become disabling. In some cases people develop episodes of sudden and intense anxiety, known as panic attacks, with physical symptoms so severe that they may be mistaken for heart disease or a stroke. Some sufferers begin to avoid situations they believe will cause them stress, to the point that they become fearful of restaurants or supermarkets, or even of leaving their homes.

Overcoming Panic has been developed as a self-help guide for overcoming and preventing panic attacks and associated agoraphobia. Based on the clinically proven techniques of cognitive behavioral therapy, this step-by-step management program will be indispensable for those affected, as well as their families and friends, psychologists, and those in the medical profession.
