Anxiety destroys the normal enjoyment of life through the fear, worry, obsessive thinking and avoidant behavior that anxious people experience. Simple activities like going to the grocery store, taking a child to her first day of school, or meeting a friend for lunch trigger a barrage of frantic "what ifs." This workshop will explore the subtleties of working with this pervasive category of disorders that affects an estimated 20% of the population.
Workshop participants will learn practical interventions that are applicable to the treatment of panic, generalized anxiety disorder, phobias, social anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
In addition, health care providers with medical and dental specialties will learn approaches to address procedural anxiety, medical avoidance as well as strategies to address somatic responses. The presenter will introduce a powerful, integrative therapy model that combines hypnosis, mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy. These approaches work together to help patients feel more empowered when flooded with anxiety.
At the end of the program, participants will be able to:
- Name the four inter-related components of anxiety
- Articulate the role of mindfulness in the treatment of anxiety
- Delineate and demonstrate a treatment protocol using CBT, and hypnosis
- Describe two techniques for tolerating uncertainty
- Identify two interventions that can help clients tolerate the physiological manifestations of panic
