Each year, thousands of people seek help from mental-health professionals for their persistent—and often debilitating—anxiety. According to the American Psychological Association, nearly 25% of U.S. adults experienced an anxiety disorder in the past year, and more than one-third of U.S. adults suffer from an anxiety disorder at some time in their lives. Mental-health professionals know that unaddressed anxiety frequently leads to other difficulties, including depression, addiction, eating disorders, and suicidal ideation. Highlighting the most up-to-date scientific research, proven evidence-based treatment strategies, and emerging approaches, this workshop will deepen participants’ understanding of anxiety and equip them with the most current, evidence-based therapeutic practices to utilize with clients.
• Identify anxiety types and common triggers and recognize the high cost of anxiety on clients’ lives
• Assess hidden causes and catalysts of anxiety and determine how modern-day pressures and complications contribute to anxiety
• Identify how the brain and body are affected by anxiety and apply a whole-person approach to treatment for the licensed mental health professional and psychologist, which encompasses emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of a person’s life
