Summary Panic attacks can make teens feel like they've lost control, leading to more anxiety, stress, fear, and depression. In this workbook, three anxiety specialists teach teens how to identify anxiety-causing thoughts and behaviors, mindfully observe their panic attacks instead of struggling against them, and experience sensations associated with panic until they learn these sensations may be uncomfortable --but not dangerous. By learning how to observe their panic attacks, teens will gain a sense of control and learn to work through even the toughest moments of extreme anxiety.
