- Panic Control Treatment (PCT) [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
A cognitive-behavioral therapy for PD that is highly efficacious, the standard delivery format of these sessions are typically offered once a week over a period of several months. This can pose challenges to rural Veterans who have multiple commitments and face long travel distances for mental health services.
To improve accessibility to panic treatment, one innovative approach has been to deliver PCT in an intensive, two-day format.
