Panicking On Purpose

 

Reid Wilson advocates intentionally triggering panic, in order to master it.

An hour-long visit to an island of calm—that’s what many clients who panic hope for when they go to a therapist.


But according to Reid Wilson, an expert on panic and other anxiety disorders, that’s the least beneficial thing we can provide. In fact, the safety of the consulting room makes it the ideal place for clients to intentionally trigger their panic. Then, with our support, they can move into the experience and master it.


In a recent conversation—part of our upcoming webcast series on the latest advances in treating anxiety—Reid illustrates the use of practical strategies for gradual exposure through which the client always comes out on top.


In this brief video clip, Reid explains how he prepares clients to “take the hit” that will allow him or her to step out of the victim position and onto the road to healing. Take just a few minutes to watch. I think you’ll find plenty you can use right away in your own work with clients who are anxious or given to panic attacks.




Reid Wilson is just one of the six innovators included in our upcoming video webcast series: Treating Anxiety: The Latest Advances. It offers a vivid look at the practical methods experts on anxiety treatment like Danie Beaulieu, Peg Wehrenberg, Steve Andreas, Lynn Lyons and David Burns have to offer that can expand your own clinical repertoire with psychotherapy’s most common presenting problem.

Who Needs an Ethics Code?

 

Some people---especially those who’ve never been in therapy---insist that the therapist is nothing more than a kind of paid friend. After all, isn’t therapy just a regularly scheduled conversation in which Party A listens sympathetically, making encouraging or consoling little noises, while Party B feels free to share the most intimate details of her life? But of course it’s a rare friendship that could tolerate such open-ended, one-sided “sharing” of our most private concerns, not to mention our uncensored thoughts and feelings.


In fact, the hallmark of the therapeutic encounter is that the therapist is an expert, trained in a particular skill-set to conduct a rather odd, rarified conversation, while the client most definitely is not. Although both therapist and client enter equally and freely into an association, it’s understood that for the duration of treatment, the relationship---however “collaborative”---will also be hierarchical: the therapist will be the guide, leader, advisor, teacher, whatever, e.g., the one in charge. In effect, the client agrees, however grudgingly and fitfully, to at least attempt to unilaterally disarm and expose his vulnerability, neediness, flaws, and failings to someone who’s in no sense obliged or expected to reciprocate.


What keeps this arrangement from being hugely dangerous for the client---what makes it even possible, let alone healing---isn’t just the therapist’s skill, but the nature of the ethical contract underlying the therapeutic relationship itself. It’s precisely the client’s deep-seated knowledge that this relationship is defined and bound all around by firm ethical rules of conduct that frees him from the ordinary internal and social strictures that often make emotional healing impossible.


We may like to think that as good-hearted, moral, upright, caring people, we don’t really need formal codes of ethics. After all, we aren’t going to rob our clients, sleep with them, gossip about them, manipulate them for our own advantage. In fact, we’d never hurt anybody . . . intentionally. But there’s the rub. Nowadays, personal and social boundaries have become so loose and blurry that it’s possible to transgress them without even realizing it. In the salad days of psychoanalysis, professional ethics---particularly those having to do with boundaries, dual relationships, confidentiality, and so forth---were largely in synch with the times. Even up into the 1960s and ’70s, we lived in a relatively buttoned-up culture in which clear demarcations between the personal, the social, and the professional were the norm. Today, all those old notions have pretty much gone out the window.


The seductive informality of our times has transformed even our most basic ideas of when our “office” hours end and where therapy takes place. A few months ago, attending a psychotherapy conference held at a seaside resort town, I was hanging out by the pool with an old therapist buddy who refused a second glass of wine because he said he had to get on the phone for a therapy session. Indeed, therapy now takes place regularly via Skype, cell phone, e-mail, and even in little therapy smidgens via texting. Do I hear the sound of Freud & Co. collectively rolling over in their graves?


In the rebroadcast of our acclaimed webcast, Handling Today’s Hidden Ethical Dilemmas, starting September 17, six of our field’s clearest thinkers demonstrate that formal codes of ethics are far more than an antiquated set of rules, periodically reviewed in mind-numbing CE trainings so we can meet our licensing requirements. Instead, they are what makes psychotherapy as we know it possible. In fact, it might be said that whenever we conduct a therapy session, whether in person, on the phone, or in cyberspace, those rules are always implicitly present---our tacit ally and cotherapist---insuring that whatever therapeutic space is being created is truly a safe haven in a world in which circles of emotional safety and protection are in exceedingly short supply.

The Neurobiology of a Panic Attack

 

Integrating Brain Science into Anxiety Treatment

In recent years, our rapidly expanding understanding of the neurobiology of anxiety has become much more than an arcane scientific disciple filled with polysyllabic terms. Therapists like Margaret Wehrenberg, who have studied closely what this new research reveals, have discovered that brain science now offers a range of practical tools that can make work with anxious clients much more efficient and effective.


In a recent conversation—part of our upcoming webcast series on the latest advances in treating anxiety—Margaret offered both an eye-opening look at the neuroanatomy of a panic attack and a highly practical discussion of how that can lead to more effective clinical interventions.


In this brief video clip, Margaret shows how she begins work with new clients—learning about their current strategies for dealing with anxiety, providing education about the neurobiology underlying their emotional state, and beginning to structure treatment.


Just in the few minutes of the interview, you’ll find plenty that you apply directly in your own work with anxious clients.
