The anxiety disorders manipulate people by injecting rules into consciousness, then using that set of laws to take over mental territory. The five anxiety disorders (phobias, panic, social anxiety, generalized anxiety and OCD) control people by generating an absolute standard for certainty and comfort. We will look at the common denominators of this game, and isolate its manifestations in each disorder. Then we will explore how the therapist can teach clients to gain ground by engineering their own tactics and strategies, including the second-order change of switching game boards altogether!

Educational Objectives:

  1. To name three modifications of people's frame of reference that empowers treatment for the anxiety disorders.
  2. To describe how these three modifications would play out in panic disorder, OCD and generalized panic disorder.
