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.

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.

Treating Anxiety: The Key is Motivation

 

David Burns on the Paradox of Resistance

According to renowned expert on anxiety David Burns, far and away the biggest barrier to treating it successfully-- sometimes even in a single session-- is recognizing how many clients covertly hold onto their symptoms, even when they restrict their lives and seem to cause them enormous distress.


That's because, deep down, they believe that their anxiety protects them more than it disrupts their lives. Add to that the fact that so much anxiety treatment involves some form of exposure to the very thing that causes them so much discomfort, clients have pretty compelling reasons to resist the onerous process of transforming their anxiety. That’s why the drop-out rates for anxiety treatment are so high.


Recently David has discovered that through a method that directly addresses the perceived perils of change in the very first session of therapy, he was able to forge an entirely different kind of collaborative alliance with client from the get-go. He began to see results beyond anything he had previously achieved in his long and distinguished career. The key was not starting the process of treatment before the client was truly ready to begin.


In this clip, David tells the memorable tale of a case that pivoted dramatically on what he calls this “paradoxical agenda-setting.”
