New and innovative ways of implementing cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) are required to address the varied needs of youth with anxiety disorders. Brief treatment formats may be useful in assisting teens to return to healthy functioning quickly and can make treatment more accessible for those who may not have local access to providers of CBT. This paper provides information about the implementation of an intensive, 8-day treatment program for panic disorder (with or without agoraphobia) in adolescents. The treatment protocol is described, as are the various areas to consider when implementing an intensive format. Two case examples are provided to detail how the treatment specifically addresses the wide array of symptoms that can present as part of panic disorder with agoraphobia. Within these case descriptions, treatment challenges are highlighted as well as ideas for handling them. Finally, areas for future research are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
