This workshop provides training in evidence-based strategies for treating a range of anxiety and related disorders in adults and children. Dr. Antony will emphasize the importance of case formulation and core treatment principles that cut across anxiety-based problems, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobias, health anxiety, and related problems.

You will learn about the diagnostic features of anxiety and related disorders (based on the most recent DSM-5 criteria), effective cognitive-behavioural methods (e.g., cognitive strategies, exposure-based techniques, relaxation-based treatments), and emerging psychological treatments (e.g., mindfulness and acceptance-based strategies). Medication treatments will also be reviewed, with an emphasis on how they can be combined with psychological treatments. Strategies for dealing with treatment resistance will be discussed, as will strategies for dealing with complex cases and comorbidity. Techniques will be illustrated using video recorded therapy vignettes and participants will receive a detailed handout.
