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 demonstration will explore the subtleties of working with this pervasive category of disorders, and will introduce a powerful, integrative therapy model. Using this integrative therapy model, attendees will learn practical interventions that are applicable to the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder, managing uncertainty. A special component of this workshop is a focus on performance anxiety. The presenter will introduce a powerful, integrative therapy model that combines CBT, hypnosis and mindfulness.
