What Is A Panic Attack? Worksheet

When working with clients who suffer from panic attacks, it is important to ensure that you explain what a panic attack is and how it can affect a person. A panic attack is a scary and uncomfortable experience, especially when you do not understand what is happening or why you are suddenly feeling uncomfortable.

Panic attacks cause alarming symptoms that can be confusing without proper education and guidance from a therapist. Learning what a panic attack is can help with planning how to manage anxiety to both prevent panic attacks and work through panic attacks when they occur.
