GAD, PHOBIAS, PTSD, OCD, BDD, PERFORMANCE ANXIETY, PUBLIC SPEAKING ANXIETY, SHYNESS, PANIC DISORDER, AND MORE
Anxiety is arguably the single most common mental health problem. Sadly, many people (therapists and clients alike) look to pills for a solution. However, the latest research indicates that the most effective treatments are drug-free.
In this course, Dr. Burns will show you how to integrate the Motivational, Cognitive, Exposure, and Hidden Emotion Models in the treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Phobias, Agoraphobia, Panic Disorder, Shyness, Public Speaking Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder OCD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) and Performance Anxiety. The goals of the treatment include high-speed, complete recovery and lasting change.
You will learn how to use a multitude of powerful and innovative treatment methods, including Paradoxical Agenda Setting, Positive Reframing, the Experimental Technique, the Feared Fantasy, Acceptance Paradox, Hidden Emotion Technique, Cognitive Flooding, Memory Rescripting, Shame-Attacking Exercises, Individual and Interpersonal Downward Arrow Techniques, and more. Dr. Burns will illustrate these methods with inspiring vignettes of patients struggling with intense anxiety, including individuals who have been victims of severe and horrific trauma, so you can see exactly how these methods work and begin to use them right away in your clinical work.
Dr. Burns will not simply present a grab bag of techniques or formulas for various “disorders.” Instead, he will show how to create a warm, vibrant collaborative relationship, overcome each patient’s subconscious resistance to change, and develop a systematic, individualized treatment plan that specifically targets the patient’s unique problems and needs.
Dr. Burns will also show you how to track clinical progress at every therapy session so you can see exactly how effective you were—or weren’t—and precisely how your patients feel about you. The information can be shocking, but will provide you with tremendous opportunities for learning and growth every time you see a patient. In fact, you will discover that your patients can be far the best teachers you’ve ever had.
