Behavioral: Intensive Panic Control Treatment (IPCT)
We will first need to develop a more thorough understanding of the potential barriers associated with implementing this novel form of treatment in these settings by conducting focus groups at each facility. This information will then be used to modify the treatment, which will then be piloted with Veterans enrolled in these clinics who have panic disorder.
