2-Day Taming the Amygdala in Anxiety Treatment: Brain-Based Strategies for Panic, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety, GAD, OCD, & PTSD – Live Webinar
September 8, 2022 @ 5:00 am - September 9, 2022 @ 1:00 pm MST
When clients don’t realize that there are brain-based reasons for your recommendations of exposure therapy, relaxation techniques, and lifestyle changes, they are less likely to make the changes they need to master their fear and worry.
If you want to be successful at helping your clients manage their anxiety, the amygdala is the most important part of the brain to understand!
Join neuroscience and anxiety expert Catherine M. Pittman, PhD, HSPP, as she guides you through what’s happening in the brain and body when a client has anxiety.
You’ll learn the essential tools and techniques, backed by neuroscience, to teach clients how to use their amygdala as a vehicle to reduce anxiety and worry. Dr. Pittman will provide easy-to-implement, practical applications to therapy that will change your clients’ brain and not simply decrease their anxiety.
You’ll learn how to:
- Assess anxiety from a neuroscience perspective
- Increase client engagement through brain-based goal setting
- Train your client’s amygdala to respond differently to anxiety
- Empower clients to recognize anxiety-igniting cognitions from the cortex
Not only will you learn the essential keys for successful anxiety treatment, Dr. Pittman will share tools and exercises from her workbook, Taming Your Amygdala, that you can use with clients.
You don’t have to be a neuroscientist to help your clients understand how their brains work! Register today to help your clients tame their amygdalas!
