Condition or disease
Behavioral: Intensive Panic Control Treatment (IPCT)
We will first need to develop a more thorough understanding of the potential barriers associated with implementing this novel form of treatment in these settings by conducting focus groups at each facility. This information will then be used to modify the treatment, which will then be piloted with Veterans enrolled in these clinics who have panic disorder.
Intensive Panic Control Treatment (IPCT) [ Time Frame: 3 Months ]
IPCT is a manualized treatment that consists of psychoeducation about panic disorder, behavioral exercises such as breathing retraining and interoceptive exposure to mimic symptoms during an actual panic attack, and cognitive restructuring (identifying thought distortions and replacing them with corrective thoughts based on realistic appraisals).
