Summary:

Anxiety can be mild, moderate, and severe, or even escalate to panic. While mild anxiety may be protective, a severely anxious person is so focused on specific details that he or she can’t think of anything else, and behavior becomes directed toward relieving the anxiety. Panic is associated with loss of control and a sense of dread, with increased motor activity, reduced ability to relate to others and distorted perceptions. The goal of this continuing education program is to update healthcare professionals’ clinical knowledge about screening, identifying and treating the most common types of anxiety disorders.
