9:00 am - 5:00 pm
(registration at 8:30)
6.5 CEU’s pending for Psychologists, Social Workers, and Mental Health Counselors
Create strategic interventions that move beyond the common emphasis on “relaxation” and “calming down,” focus on how to identify therapeutic targets and create new frames that move people out of the“content trap” of the anxiety disorder.
Learn to interrupt anxiety’s predictable cognitive, behavioral, and physiological patterns.
Participants will learn how to design interventions that hypnotically and experientially move clients toward uncertainty, address the use of safety crutches and avoidance, and promote the skills of differentiation and problem solving that combat the global avoidance style of anxious children and adults.
Anxiety’s connection to the development of depression, insomnia, and somatic issues will also be addressed.
