The Health Anxiety Treatment Guide: ACT and CBT-Based Interventions for Illness Anxiety and Somatic Symptom Disorders – Live Webinar
September 12, 2022 @ 6:00 am - 2:00 pm MST
A nervous awareness of potential illness will continue to lurk on every doorknob and in every crowded room for years to come.
But for many clients, extreme anxieties about their health lead to hours checking their symptoms online, undergoing dozens of unnecessary doctor visits, and doing anything to evade perceived health risks.
And if you can’t help these clients learn to stop fearing death, they’ll continue to avoid life.
But these anxieties can be tricky to recognize and tough to treat. Without the right approach you could fail to spot the problem, lose your client’s trust when you suggest their fears are exaggerated, or even inadvertently reinforce their anxieties.
That’s why health anxiety treatment expert and author Taylor Ham, LMFT created this online training, so you can get the up-to-date skills and clinical tools you need to confidently diagnose and treat these clients and free them from the fears that control their lives.
Packed with case studies, worksheets and practice tips, Taylor will provide you a blueprint for identifying health anxieties that can hide beneath relationship distress, OCD and other presenting issues. PLUS she’ll give you step-by-step instructions on how to use CBT, ACT, and mindfulness-based interventions to make real therapeutic progress and:
- Maintain clients’ trust when confronting them about exaggerated symptoms
- End reassurance seeking and checking behaviors that can prolong their anxieties
- Use exercises to help clients tolerate uncertainty and accept somatic symptoms
- Reduce clients’ unhealthy rumination and intrusive thoughts
- And much more!
Don’t wait to get the tools you need to break the unhealthy cycle trapping so many of today’s clients.
