ACT with Anxiety: Help Clients Get Unstuck from Anxiety and Enrich Their Lives – Live Webinar
March 24, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm MST
As a therapist, it’s likely you treat stress and anxiety successfully with techniques like relaxation almost every day. But have you noticed that some clients seem to just get worse, despite your best efforts? That the more you work to reduce the stress or the anxiety, the worse it gets?
Teaching relaxation, coping or distress tolerance skills may be fine for surviving a crisis, but in the long run, they often subtly reinforce avoidance of thoughts and feelings. Even talking about anxiety week after week in therapy can become a form of avoidance! Worse still, the struggle with anxiety can become ingrained in clients’ sense of identity, and their lives become very restricted and without purpose or meaning.
Join ACT expert and author Dr. Richard Sears as he brings the principles of ACT to life with his wisdom, humor, and passion. He’ll help you transform your clients’ relationship with their anxieties to help them build a life worth living. You’ll learn how to skillfully use:
- Acceptance and mindfulness processes to help clients relate differently to anxious thoughts and feelings
- Commitment and behavioral change processes to help them flexibly move in the direction of a more meaningful life
From explaining the ins and outs of ACT with anxiety using everyday metaphors and samples, Dr. Sears’ provides dozens of techniques that can transform your clients’ suffering in the very first session!
And as an added bonus, you’ll receive an EXCLUSIVE 25% OFF discount on Dr. Sears’ ACT with Anxiety and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy & Mindfulness Toolbox books— when you purchase either or both with registration!
