NWAI is proudly sponsoring the following workshop for both licensed and training clinicians:
Mastering the Anxiety Game in Clinical Practice: Rapid Change for the Anxious Mind with Reid Wilson, PhD When it comes to treating anxiety, growing evidence shows that the quickest, most effective approach involves ramping up fears while welcoming the experience. Join internationally recognized anxiety disorders treatment expert and author, Reid Wilson, PhD, for this cutting-edge seminar and start helping your clients stop the noise and change the way they relate to their anxieties. You will learn how to rapidly engage anxious clients in the therapeutic alliance and then help them shift their relationship with their fears and override the responses that perpetuate them. You’ll explore paradoxical strategies to help clients transform their anxieties and worries from intimidating threats into challenges that they can meet and conquer. The goal is to persuade clients to adopt a self-help protocol to voluntarily, purposely and aggressively seek out uncertainty moment-by-moment.
