How often do you encounter a client suffering from anxiety who is stuck in a pattern of severe and unrelenting worry and despite your best efforts they do not respond to the usual therapy approaches? Does your therapeutic tool box need new and creative instruments? Do you desire a comprehensive formula that provides guidance rather than abstract theoretical paradigms?
Dr. Heidi Schreiber-Pan’s seminar offers a clinical blueprint that is concise and practical; highlighting a cutting-edge treatment plan for clinicians to treat various types of anxiety disorders. This unique 6-step approach describes a distinctive arrangement of evidence-based therapeutic interventions that reduce symptomology common to the experience of chronic anxiety, panic and worry.
Each step highlights core skills necessary for symptom relief and consequent long-term resiliency. Lastly, this model provides an outline for a comprehensive maintenance plan to assure lasting positive change. You will leave the seminar with competence in using this 6-step treatment plan and the skill to add innovative tools from neuroscience, interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, CBT, ACT and logotherapy.
