We will begin by studying how all anxiety disorders generate an absolute standard for certainty and com-fort, thus manipulating people into worry. You will learn specific skills within the three targets of treat-ment for both worry and GAD: physiological, cognitive, and behavioral. Then we will explore strategies for panic, social anxiety, phobias and OCD, helping clients find the courage and motivation to challenge their old beliefs and attitudes. Cutting-edge treatment now pushes further into the confrontational.  You will learn how to help clients purposely seek out anxiety as their ticket to freedom from crippling fear.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Teach six or more techniques for controlling anxiety-provoking worries.
  2. List four methods for generating alternative perspectives.
  3. Explain how to shift clients’ orientation from defense to offense.
