I think it’s important to include behavioral therapy for anxiety and panic attacks because much of your life involves what you do, not just what you think.  Well at least it’s difficult to seperate the two.  Just like changing your thoughts can change how you feel, changing your behavior can change your feelings.

Behavioral therapy for anxiety concentrates on what you do, instead of directly working on your thoughts like cognitive therapy.  However, don’t think of cognitive therapy versus behavioral therapy for anxiety.  Think of them working together.  Using techniques from behavioral therapy as well as cognitive therapy is very helpful.

Moreover changing your behaviors can bring about huge positive change in your life.  It can definitely be helpful to look at different examples of behavioral therapy for anxiety.  I hope you’ll spend some time reviewing the pages within this section on behavioral therapy for anxiety.
