This seminar is designed to give you all the tools you need to intervene effectively, using research supported techniques, with adults suffering from panic disorder. Dr. Beth McCreary, a clinical psychologist specializing in the treatment of anxiety disorders, will present every step of the process in a concrete, accessible format. You will learn how to assess panic and agoraphobia using a variety of instruments and how to intervene using psychoeducation, mindfulness, cognitive strategies, and (critical to the process) both interoceptive and in vivo behavioral exposures. Dr. McCreary will also cover how these strategies fit into the paradigm of acceptance and commitment therapy. The format will include some demonstrations (with audience participation), multiple case examples to illustrate the process, and ample time for questions and answers. The specific strategies covered are intended to supplement participants’ general therapeutic skills. Deadline for registering October 25.
