The stress response is a primitive response system designed to protect us from danger. But some people experience various life events that can reprogram this system to turn on at the wrong time, resulting in recurring stress-based “false alarms” that result in anxiety disorders that can be extremely difficult to treat. A special approach that integrates an understanding of neuroscience, psychotherapy research, and proven therapy techniques can vastly improve treatment outcomes and bring lasting relief for clients stuck in “false alarm” purgatory.

Recent advances in neuroscience have increased our knowledge of how and why people change.Brain-based therapy synthesizes neuroscience, evidence-based treatment, psychotherapy research, and attachment theory into a hybrid therapeutic model.This seminar will examine how outcomes are enhanced by using brain-based therapy approaches with people who have been plagued by autostress disorders. Just as people with autoimmune disorders suffer from attacks on their bodies by their own immune system, people with anxiety suffer attacks by their stress system on their mind/brain/body. Their anxiety becomes an autostress disorder wherein their own stress system no longer protects them from danger, but alerts them to danger when there is none. Clients with anxiety disorders are confused by the symptoms,as well as by different therapists they encounter who ascribe to the various brand name therapies.
