Nearly everyone worries, over 25% of people believe they worry too much, and about 6% of people will suffer from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).
GAD is particularly important to treat as frequently leads to depression, medical problems, and more distressing anxiety disorders like panic disorder and OCD.
In this webinar learn why your efforts to manage anxiety and worry have likely failed and learn the 10 best evidence-based treatment strategies to effectively manage GAD.
Why should you Attend: Until the mid 90's worry was very difficult to treat and most therapists still struggle with helping clients to manage their worry, anxiety, and depression. Therapists' and individuals' pitfalls of treatment are two-fold: 1) Fighting anxiety actually fuels anxiety and 2) Failure to address the anxiety spiral such that we wait until too late into the anxiety spiral to use coping strategies.
In this webinar you will learn 10 evidence-based strategies that circumvent fighting anxiety. You will learn to teach clients to prevent anxiety from spiraling out of control as well as a technique to actually weaken individuals' worry spirals in the session. Discover two reasons why cognitive therapy often fails and a simple strategy that is effective. Finally, learn the new way of living, active relaxation (applied relaxation) a strategy to prevent anxiety spirals and live a calmer life.
