Practice Guideline for the treatment of patients with panic disorder, 2nd Edition

Description

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing was originally developed as a treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (206), but it has been studied as a possible treatment for panic disorder. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing involves reprocessing distressing memories while engaging in guided eye movement. When applied to panic disorder, EMDR targets distressing memories such as the memory of the first panic attack and life events that the patient associates with panic disorder (207).
