Panic Attacks on the Rise

Marie Claire magazine highlighted this week the disturbing fact that Panic Disorder –particularly amongst women – is on the rise.

“In the past five years, charity Anxiety UK has seen a 10 per cent increase in calls to its helpline and email support network, with one in ten people suffering from panic attacks and, of these, two thirds are women. Meanwhile, NHS figures show outpatient appointments for anxiety disorders, of which panic attacks are a common form, have increased five-fold since 2007, and hospital admissions increased by a third. Prescriptions for tranquilizers such as Xanax and Valium rose by 13 per cent in the past four years, and for antidepressants – often used to treat panic attacks – by 38 per cent.”

CBT for Panic Attacks is one of the longest established CBT treatment approaches. Developed over twenty five years ago, extensively researched and validated, it should represent an essential part of any good therapist's toolkit.

If you want to add this to yours or simply want to refresh your knowledge and skills come along to our

About this Blog

This is our first attempt to join the exciting world of blogging and bring to you all the fresh and hot news about the world of psychology and, of course, about your favourite training company. This is our new enterprise and we are finding our way in this mysterious world of blogging cautiously (but surely...) :-)
We are hoping to move our popular SDS Delegate Debate into this blogging format in the future and looking forward to lively discussions here with you. We are planning to start with publishing already existing SDS Delegate Debates — with comments received from you. Then we'll move to the current news as well as will run new delegate debates there.
Feel free to leave comments to any of the posts — whether they are old debates, the news or new debates. As you can guess — every blogger loves his readers and LIVES for the comments. :-) We are just the same. You don’t need to register in order to be able to comment. You can leave your feedback as “Anonymous”, however, may we ask you to sign you name (or nick) at the end of your comment (even if you are commenting without logging in) so that we know how to address you.
Another useful tool that SDS Blog provides us with is availability of Polls that enable us to find out your views about various subjects. Polls are located on the left panel of the page and updated regularly. Please feel free to vote. You can see the results of each poll by clicking the button "Results".
If you wish to register — nothing can be easier — you just open a Google account — most of you, surely, already use one.
Your comments are read by SDS Consultants regularly and — in many cases — replied to.
The blog is moderated — mainly to protect you and other readers from spam and irrelevant comments.
All posts are tagged — hopefully it'll help you to find your way around there.
Wish us luck and please join the list of our followers.
