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.
Margaret Werenberg 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 Reid Wilson, Danie Beaulieu, Steve Andreas, Lynn Lyons and David Burns have to offer that can expand your own clinical repertoire with psychotherapy’s most common presenting problem.
