Description

What is this workshop about?

This practical workshop will help participants develop techniques to treat and support those suffering from anxiety disorders. While the focus will be on General Anxiety Disorder we will also cover some aspects of Social Anxiety, Panic Attacks and Phobias. It will also help professionals consider how they can apply anxiety management to themselves. The focus is on the role of thinking skills from the perspective of CBT

Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only a third of those suffering receive treatment.
People with an anxiety disorder are three to five times more likely to go to the doctor and six times more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders than those who do not suffer from anxiety disorders.
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness, affecting nearly 1 in 5 of the population every year.

There is scientific evidence that chronic worry in generalised anxiety is a result of unhelpful 'metacognitions' (i.e., beliefs about thinking) and behaviours. By targeting metacognitions and associated behaviours in therapy, levels of anxiety and distress can be alleviated. This workshop will focus on simple, practical techniques with a proven track record in helping alleviate the distress of anxiety.
