Description

Effective treatment of panic involves (among other components): monitoring symptoms, identifying catastrophic thinking, and cognitive restructuring. This cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) diary for panic targets all three of these areas. Record panic attack frequency along with information about accompanying body sensations and negative thoughts. There is additional space for a rational ‘answer to the negative thought’.
