Managing Panic Disorder Through Chess Therapy

01.29.19 A paper was published in Volume 30 of the Asian Journal of Psychiatry that studied the effect of playing chess on treating a panic attack. Although this research is still in its infancy, the conclusion of this particular study was that chess therapy with the right level of difficulty can be recommended as a very effective non-pharmaceutical method for the successful treatment of panic attacks.
