Interactive Online Workshop cancelled

 

Description

This seminar provides training in evidence-based strategies for treating a range of anxiety and related disorders.  Dr. Antony will emphasize the importance of case formulation, transdiagnostic principles that cut across anxiety-based problems, and effective strategies for particular problems, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia, posttraumatic stress disorder, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobias, health anxiety, and related problems. Although the focus will be mostly on adults, suggestions for adapting treatment for children and adolescents will be included. You will learn about the diagnostic features of anxiety and related disorders, factors that contribute to the onset and maintenance, and effective cognitive and behavioral methods for overcoming anxiety (e.g., cognitive reappraisal, behavioural experiments, imagery-based approaches, exposure-based techniques, relaxation-based treatments, 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.
