This paper discusses anxiety disorders and how they affect people who suffer from them. The writer explains the disorder and some of the available therapies, and then ties them together so that the reader can clearly understand how the therapies and theories behind them can be used in the modification of behavior in individuals with anxiety disorder. In this way, the paper shows how many individuals can be helped and freed from the self-imposed prison that their disorder has created.

Paradoxical Treatments
Conclusion: Where Anxiety and Theory Meet

From the Paper:

"When panic attacks continue to occur, the person is then said to have panic disorder or anxiety disorder. Social anxiety is the term used when these panic attacks are caused by social situations. Someone with anxiety disorder may feel perfectly fine when they are at home, and this may not change around a group of people that they know well, such as their close friends and family. Often their interactions with others seem totally normal in a social setting, as long as they are comfortable with their surroundings and comfortable with the people who are near them."
