Cognitive theories of panic entail a recognition of four components of panic disorder; catastrophic thoughts, anxiety, panic attacks, and physiologic activity.The present study investigated the relationship among these components before and after a six week cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) intervention. The subject sample consisted of 27 panic disorder patients who were randomly assigned to either a treatment group or wait-list control group.

Analyses of variance were conducted:The results indicated that six weeks of CBT were significantly effective in decreasing scores on ASI (catastrophic thoughts), STAI-T (trait anxiety), and number of reported panic attacks for the treatment group relative to the control group. In contrast, CBT was not effective in decreasing physiologic arousal in the treatment group as measured by blood pressure, pulse, and finger temperature indices.

Discussed is the role that brief (six week) CBT can provide, as opposed to longer-term CBT, as an initial treatment intervention for panic disorder. Also discussed is the need for future research. In specific, replication studies are needed which control for demand characteristics, physiologic measures, and follow-up data.
