Overview: Anxiety is one of the most common reasons clients seek mental health services. However, anxiety disorders can be especially difficult to treat, and oftentimes professionals note that many clients seek treatment for years with minimal relief. This topic teaches professionals the basic neuroscience behind anxiety, and explains why traditional methods are often necessary, but not sufficient, for recovery from anxiety.
Additionally, this content presents an easy-to-follow roadmap for anxiety treatment and presents several examples of techniques that have been shown to help clients better manage and reduce their anxiety in an efficient and effective manner.
Why should you Attend: Anxiety disorders are one of the most common reasons clients seek mental health services. However, some clients continue to experience severe symptoms months or years into treatment, despite treatment compliance. One reason progress can stall in therapy is that traditional psychotherapeutic methods often emphasize "top down," cognitive methods and do not incorporate "bottom up" (often somatic) techniques, which can alter key brain areas implicated in anxiety.
Attendees of this webinar will learn about the main areas of the brain involved in anxiety disorders, be able to identify at least two brain-changing techniques that have been shown to help clients manage and reduce anxiety, and outline three main ways to change the brain. With more options for anxiety treatment, treatment approaches can be tailored to individual clients’ needs. Attendees will leave the seminar with a better understanding of the necessary components of anxiety treatment, and concrete techniques they can begin using tomorrow.
