Webinar Description

Does your therapeutic tools box need new and creative instruments? How often do you encounter a client suffering from anxiety who does not respond to the usually therapy approaches? Do you desire a comprehensive formula that provides guidance rather than abstract theoretical paradigms? 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. 

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.

You will leave the seminar with competence in using this 6-step treatment plan and the skill to add innovative tools from neuroscience, interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, CBT, ACT, and logotherapy.
