Should you ever slap someone in a panic attack to bring them to their senses like in the movies? I've seen it happen and we someone who suffers with panic attacks thinks it would make it worse.

I mean, I personally wouldn’t want to be slapped when having a panic attack (or not for that matter) It might work, I don’t know, but I wouldn’t risk it tbh. If anything I’d slap them back 😂

This would probably would have been inappropriate in the 1950s...

Not at all.
If someone slapped me in the middle of a panic attack I'm 100% sure that would make it worse.

No you should not slap someone while they are having a panic attack. My mother has them and hers are triggered by going to certain areas. When she knows she might possibly have one, I take control of the situation and remove her from the area and stay with her. She's had them for years so she does try to fight against them but I think it helps having someone with her who can stay calm for her.

Awesome, I'm freaking out because I feel the world is attacking me and you're going to attack me? you'd likely end up badly hurt with no sympathy.

If you want someone to stop panic crying, it is better to soothe them (e.g. by giving them a hug) than to slap them. If you slapped them, the person would feel they were under attack therefore would probably increase the intensity of their cries.
