  • The present study examined the characteristics of panic disorder and current treatments available for individuals seeking management of their panic-related symptoms. Panic disorder and agoraphobia, their impact on quality of life, and areas of dysfunction in various life domains for individuals with panic disorder are presented. Also presented is as an overview of rehabilitation counseling and its scope of practice, as it relates to possible areas of treatment and rehabilitation of individuals with panic disorder. Participants in the study were persons with panic disorder who were surveyed on treatments currently or previously received for panic-related symptoms, and their perceptions of the value or effectiveness of these services. These participants will then be asked about services they had not received, but perceived to be of possible value in coping with panic disorder symptoms and dysfunction as a consequence of panic symptoms in significant life areas. Services provided in the rehabilitation counseling scope of practice will be discussed in relation to survey responses, as well as implications for rehabilitation counselors.
