Understanding Panic Attacks and Overcoming Fear
- Thursday 13 March 2014
Village Hotel Leeds North, 186 Otley Road, Headingley, Leeds LS16 5PR
Presented by Dr Roger Baker, Professor of Clinical Psychology, Bournemouth University, and Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Dorset Healthcare NHS University Foundation Trust.
Panic attacks are distressing, inexplicable, and can become a chronic lifelong disability. Understanding what panic attacks are, and what they are not, is a key to recovery. Based on his self-help book ‘Understanding Panic Attacks and Overcoming Fear’, Professor Roger Baker lays the foundation for a clear understanding of what seems so perplexing to panic sufferers.
The workshop will cover the symptoms of panic attacks, an in-depth understanding of each symptom, and the common misunderstandings about symptoms. We will provide an overview of how for some individuals it can become a chronic disability and an understanding of emotional processing and what sets off the first panic attack. The behavioural, cognitive and emotional components involved in effective treatment of the condition will also be covered.
