Diagnosing Panic Disorder
Dr. Paula Levine, Psychologist and Founding Director of the Miami Counseling Resource Center, invented a ���thermometer� and she uses it to educate in cases of panic attacks. She also describes how it works.
She explains she wants to demonstrate the fluidity of anxiety. In a scale from 0 to 100, 0 represents calmness and the most relaxed that people can feel.
The difference between discrete panic, attacks and panic disorder is: ���I�۪m in fear of the next one. I live in fear of the next one� she says.
