This excellent guide offers help to those who suffer from panic anxiety. Part 1 discusses panic-like symptoms and their relation to both physiological and psychological disorders, while Part 2 recommends ways to eliminate or reduce those symptoms. As the book explains, psychological panic disorder is the body's emergency response, inappropriately triggered by a faulty belief system, to a situation perceived as threatening. Sufferers are given the tools to restore calm, including the means to develop an internal "supportive observer" that can assess the situation more accurately, provide alternative courses of action, and draw attention away from negative, self-defeating thoughts. For therapists as well as their clients. Bonnie Hoffman, C.S.W., North Fork Counseling Service, Mattituck, N.Y.
