The overprediction of fear model is discussed in relation to the development and maintenance of panic disorder with agoraphobia. Data are presented which demonstrate a significant relationship between self-reports of phobic avoidance and anticipation of panic, both before and after treatment, and the occurrence of panic. Implications of the overprediction model for exposure-based therapy are also discussed along with its limitations and some directions for future research.
