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.
