Ken Strong is a graduate of the University of British Columbia. During his 35 year teaching career he has published widely in the fields of Science Education, Forensics and Herpetology. This book is based upon his personal experiences as both a past sufferer of panic attacks and a long time role as a support person to those with panic attacks. As the maintainer of the Caregivers' Section of the multi-awards winning tAPir Anxiety Page on the Internet, Ken has been in close contact with hundreds of people who had the disease and an equally large number of families who were both looking for and willing to share information. This book reflects their needs and advice.From the Author:
