Treatments for Anxiety Disorder
This is a form of "talk therapy" in which the therapist and
the patient, working together, seek to uncover emotional conflicts that
may underlie the patient's problems. By talking about these conflicts
and gaining a better understanding of them, the patient is helped to
overcome the problems. Often, psychodynamic treatment focuses on events
of the past and making the patient aware of the ramifications of long-buried
Although psychodynamic approaches may help to relieve the stress that
contributes to panic attacks, they do not seem to stop the attacks directly.
In fact, there is no scientific evidence that this form of therapy by
itself is effective in helping people to overcome panic disorder or
agoraphobia. However, if a patient's panic disorder occurs along with
some broader and pre-existing emotional disturbance, psychodynamic treatment
may be a helpful addition to the overall treatment program.
