Event Description

The anxiety disorders manipulate people by injecting rules into consciousness, then using that set of laws to take over mental territory. 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 mental 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!

This brief strategic approach to cognitive-behavioral therapy helps clients find the courage and motivation to challenge their old beliefs and attitudes. Practical methods enable clients to ignore the content of their obsessive worries and to explore the feeling of uncertainty rather than fleeing from it. The cutting -edge anxiety treatment is now pushing further into the confrontational. You will learn how to help clients purposely to seek out anxiety as their ticket to freedom from crippling fear. We will begin by studying how all anxiety disorders generate an absolute standard for certainty and comfort, thus manipulating people into worry. You will learn specific skills within the three targets of treatment for both worry and generalized anxiety disorder: physiological, cognitive, and behavioral. With all the anxiety disorders, therapists can teach clients to purposely seek out anxiety as their ticket to freedom from crippling fear. For panic disorder and its phobias, you will learn how to divide and conquer: to interrupt anticipatory anxiety and to manage physical symptoms.
