What Works in Anxiety Treatment

Four Techniques Your Clients Can Use Anywhere, Anytime

Margaret Wehrenberg • 12/7/2017

By Margaret Wehrenberg - The rewards of teaching people how to use deceptively simple anxiety-relief techniques are great. While clients in this culture have been indoctrinated to want and expect instantaneous relief from their discomfort at the pop of a pill, we can show them we have something better to offer.

Confronting "Technostress" in the Workplace

We're Being Smothered in Data. Here's What Therapists Can Do About It.

Margaret Wehrenberg • 6/8/2017

By Margaret Wehrenberg - Perhaps no endemic workplace condition causes more anguish among employees than the culture of contrived urgency, the ginned-up atmosphere of crisis, in which everything—every project, every report, every meeting—is an urgent priority, superseding all the other urgent priorities before it in the long queue.

The Four Types of Depression and How to Overcome Them

Recalibrating Your Interventions for "Microtherapy"

Margaret Wehrenberg • 11/25/2016

By Margaret Wehrenberg - Rather than seeing depression as some kind of monolith, I've found it useful to see depressive symptoms as falling into four basic clusters. By immediately addressing the attitudes and distinctive vulnerabilities that lie at the core of each cluster, treatment can begin to bring about a shift in brain function that makes longer term work easier.

Breaking Free from the Cure Myth

Treating Anxiety and Depression as Chronic Conditions

Margaret Wehrenberg • 8/23/2016

By Margaret Wehrenberg - I’ve begun to put aside my idealized view that unless people overcome their difficulties once and for all, therapy is somehow a failure. More and more, that perspective seems simplistic and disconnected from the realities of what psychotherapy can actually provide. In fact, evidence continues to accumulate that many people who have anxiety and depression suffer bouts of it all their lives, even after a good response to therapy.

The Brain Science Behind Addiction and Habit

How Explaining the Neurology of Addiction Helps Clients Reevaluate Behavior

Margaret Wehrenberg • 7/27/2016

By Margaret Wehrenberg - The labels we use to describe clients’ behaviors have important therapeutic implications. Sometimes using the word addiction and explaining its neurological basis can help clients focus on the consequences of their behavior and carefully plan how to change their self-destructive patterns. But how do we parse the tenuous line between addiction and habit? First, we must recognize that habit is part of addiction.

Should Depression Be Treated as a Chronic Condition?

Rethinking How We Deal with Depression

Margaret Wehrenberg • 12/5/2014

I’ve begun to put aside my idealized view that unless people overcome their difficulties once and for all, therapy is somehow a failure. More and more, that perspective seems simplistic and disconnected from the realities of what psychotherapy, no matter how skillful the clinician may be, can actually provide. So what if we start to think differently about this? What if we view anxiety and depression—especially generalized anxiety and dysphoric states of mild and moderate depressions—not as disorders that will be cured, but as chronic, relapsing, remitting disorders?

Guidelines for Using Drugs in Anxiety Treatments

Margaret Wehrenberg • 11/2/2003

How does a therapist decide whether to use therapy, medications, or a combination of both to treat anxiety? How can a clinician determine whether the long-term use of medications might actually prevent a client from learning to conquer anxiety? The answer lies in recognizing the distinctions between different forms of anxiety and carefully assessing the client's own history to determine what kind or combination of anxieties he or she experiences.
