Description

This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of core CBT strategies for anxiety-related disorders (e.g., panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, OCD, PTSD, health anxiety, phobias), depression, anger management, perfectionism, insomnia, and other problems, in both adults and children.  Participants will learn about a variety of effective strategies, including cognitive approaches (e.g., cognitive reappraisal, Socratic questioning, behavioral experiments, imagery-based approaches), exposure-based techniques, behavioral activation, habit reversal, relaxation-based treatments, problem solving, mindfulness and acceptance-based strategies, and relapse prevention. Case formulation will be discussed and effective tools for dealing with treatment resistance (such as motivational interviewing) will also be reviewed.
