CBT with Anxiety Disorders

ID: 5481WEB

An estimated 40 million adults in the U.S. reportedly suffer from one of the anxiety disorders in a given year. The causes may be quite variable, ranging from reactions to life events to personality factors to neurobiology. Although normal anxiety is an adaptive emotional reaction, excessive anxiety if left untreated can create havoc with daily life. The anxiety disorders that bring clients to our offices often contribute to considerable life dysfunction, yet they are highly treatable. The primary focus of this webinar is to identify clinical manifestations of each disorder, and to thoroughly review the most effective treatment strategies for each.
