Anxiety, especially in its more chronic and unassuming forms, is a common thread that runs through the mental fabric of modern society. Lots of clients come to us wanting answers, wanting cures, or wanting permanent fixes, and we can feel pulled as clinicians to provide concrete solutions to our clients’ presenting concerns, especially when they are in the act of suffering.
Learn to use solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) integrated with mindfulness skills and techniques to effectively support and treat clients challenged with various forms of anxiety. Discover how this unique integrative skills-based approach can help clients manage unabated anxious thoughts and heightened somatic symptoms that trigger increased cortisol production. Help clients learn how to understand anxiety as a part of the human experience to be solution-managed, not “cured”, moving them toward a place where they can reduce the impact of anxiety on their daily living.Transform your clinical toolset with this unique anxiety management approach that will give you the confidence to effectively treat the growing epidemic of post covid anxiety.
