Description

Unified Experiential CBT for Generalised Anxiety Disorder

PRESENTER: Dr Sanjay Rao, Associate Professor of Psychiatry University of Ottawa

Course Description

This course covers the key theories on worrying including intolerance of uncertainty, metacognitive beliefs, experiential avoidance and failures in problems solving.

Workshop Description

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is one of the commonest anxiety disorder and cognitive behavioural therapy is the first-line treatment condition for this condition with several clinical trials supporting the interventions. Clients with generalized anxiety often suffer silently and worrying often affects their relationships. Therapists may find the incessant stream of worrying difficult to manage in sessions. Common techniques used for other anxiety disorders may not be as effective for generalized anxiety.

This course covers the key theories on worrying including intolerance of uncertainty, metacognitive beliefs, experiential avoidance and failures in problems solving.

A step by step protocol approach will convert the above theories into a practical framework for delivering intervention for GAD in clinical practice. The course is designed to use effective experiential and structured techniques to work towards skills mastery in treating clients with GAD.

Course attendees will receive a certificate of attendance from the Dept of Psychiatry, University of Ottawa.
