Workshop Description:

So, You’re Anxious About Treating Anxiety?

Treating Anxiety Disorders can be tricky. There are a lot of people that claim to do it and there are not a lot of people that do it well. Turns out, there are a lot of therapies out there that try to reduce anxiety, and those therapies see great results in session, but not much else after the session is over. What if there was a way to treat Anxiety Disorders that taught people how to handle anxiety – not try to make it go away? Think about it – we have a Fight, Flight, or Freeze system. We were born with the ability to feel anxious. Anxiety is not bad or wrong, but sometimes It can spin out of control. What if the best way to feel better was to learn how to not be so overwhelmed by feeling anxious?

Intrigued? Come to this presentation and learn how to combine the B of CBT (via Exposure and Response Prevention therapy) with the C of CBT. Move away from talking and get into actually doing things that help people learn to deal with their anxiety better than they ever have. From Interoceptive ERP for Panic Disorder to Mistake Practice for Social Anxiety Disorder to Milk Chugs on YouTube for Emetaphobia, this talk will have you spewing out all sorts of awesome tips for your patients by the time it is done. And, there will be a healthy dose of fun and humor to boot – no sleepy talks here!!!
