no. 62 – The Panic Attacks Episode

Is there a difference between a panic attack and an anxiety attack? It’s a common question, but one that many people can’t answer. There are some important distinctions between the two and today’s episode uncovers the truth about panic attacks.

As a part of Mental Health Awareness Month, today’s episode features my interview with Dr. Lata McGinn of Cognitive Behavior Consultants. In the show we discuss:

  • the difference between a panic attack and an anxiety attack
  • why and when panic attacks are most likely to occur
  • who is most susceptible to panic attacks
  • strategies for dealing with a panic in the short term
  • how cognitive behavioral therapy may offer the best long-term treatment for panic attacks and panic disorder

I close out today’s show with a recommendation for the perfect gift for graduates this time of year. I’m recommending Prep: The Essential College Cookbook by my colleague Katie Morford. As a complete guide to cooking basics, it’s a great way to help ensure this next generation is more well-equipped in the kitchen.
