12 CEs

Live Webinar

May 22 and 23, 2024

10:00AM - 4:45PM EST

Trainer: Dr. Heidi Schreiber-Pan

 

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.

This course will be teaching how to create calm in the nervous system through the power of neuroplasticity. Furthermore, the course will instruct on powerful strategies to promote emotional resilience with self-compassion, boundary setting, and inner-child work. Attendees will learn how to apply mindfulness-based cognitive and behavioral interventions.

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.

The six steps are:

  1. Creating Calm in the Nervous System by Taming Amy(gdala)
  2. Introducing and Reinforcing Self-Compassion
  3. Applying Mindfulness-based Cognitive and Behavioral Interventions
  4. Alleviating Attachment Anxiety
  5. Determining Values, Purpose and Meaning
  6. Establishing and Executing a Maintenance Plan

 

You will leave the seminar with competence in using this 6-step treatment plan and the skill to add innovative tools from the following approaches and theories: positive psychology, interpersonal neurobiology, neuroscience, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, Attachment theory, CBT, ACT, and logotherapy.
