There's no reason that therapists can't offer their clients immediate relief from anxiety symptoms, even without medication. This course will provide a package of practical, easy-to-use, highly effective clinical tools to help clients get control of their anxiety. You'll learn how to integrate into your practice a variety of relaxation techniques, including breathing exercises, imagery, and progressive relaxation. You'll also learn concrete methods to dissipate panic attacks. We'll discuss worry-management techniques (including the worry-well-and-worry-once method), thought-stopping exercises, and skills for managing the link between anger and anxiety. You'll leave the session with a new confidence that you can be of immediate service to your anxious clients.
