Don't Panic!: Interventions to use with clients experiencing anxiety
|Presenters||Jenny Melrose, MAPS|
|Description||Anxiety and stress are two of the most common presenting
complaints clients in the health and community sectors - and when they are not the presenting issues they are often underlying other problems.
This one-day workshop is open to any workers dealing
directly with or interested in working with clients experiencing anxiety or stress. It will provide participants with an understanding of the nature of anxiety and will cover various brief interventions. Participants will be encouraged to practice techniques for their own stress management as well as learning how to teach these strategies to their clients. This workshop draws from both Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
Participants will have the opportunity to:
Learn about physical and psychological components
Describe the link between thoughts, feelings and
Identify common unrealistic thinking patterns
Use various cognitive and behavioural strategies
helpful with anxiety.
