Clinicians are very likely to encounter patients in their clinical practice that experience both anxiety and medical illness. Sometimes differentiating the symptoms of each can become extremely difficult and can serve to exacerbate either condition. This workshop will introduce some of the cognitive-behavioral techniques that are used in helping clinicians differentiate symptoms and also intervene, providing patients with skills for managing their anxiety, as well as their medical illness.

Educational Objectives:

  1. The participants will be better able to aid patients in differentiating symptoms of anxiety and medical illness.
  2. Participants will learn techniques for short-term treatment of anxiety with patients who have medical illnesses.
  3. Participants will learn to determine when to use behavioral as opposed to cognitive interventions or both.
