CBT Intensive (Part 1): Evidence-Based Treatment of Anxiety and Related Disorders

Arts Department Shoot March 19, 2013.

Arts Department Shoot March 19, 2013.

with Martin M. Antony, PhD

Note: Participants are welcome to register for both Parts 1 and Part 2 together or for either part independently.

The first two days of the Four-Day Intensive CBT Course on the Treatment of Anxiety and Depression provide training in evidence-based strategies for treating a range of anxiety and related disorders in adults and children. Dr. Antony will emphasize the importance of case formulation and core treatment principles that cut across anxiety-based problems, including OCD, panic disorder, PTSD, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobias, and health anxiety.

You will learn about effective cognitive-behavioural methods, including cognitive strategies, exposure-based techniques, and relaxation-based treatments, as well as new and emerging psychological approaches (e.g., mindfulness-and-acceptance-based strategies). The use of medication will also be reviewed, with an emphasis on how it can be combined with psychological treatments. Strategies for dealing with treatment resistance (such as motivational interviewing) will be discussed, as will ways of dealing with complex cases and comorbidity. Techniques will be illustrated using video-recorded therapy sessions, and participants will receive a detailed handout.
