Calming the Anxious Brain: Using Neuroscience to End Anxiety, Panic and Worry



Join neuroscience and anxiety expert, Dr. Catherine Pittman, and learn her keys for successful anxiety treatment. Dr. Pittman integrates brain-based strategies for calming the anxious mind with client communication techniques that motivate change in your clients. Catherine’s approach promotes adherence to treatment and strengthens the therapeutic alliance - which is essential when working with anxious, worried, traumatised, or obsessive clients.

  • Apply proven brain-based strategies for fear, panic, social anxiety, OCD, GAD, and PTSD
  • Understand the difference between cortex-based and amygdala-based anxiety
  • Motivate clients and calm the anxious brain using the power of neuroplasticity
  • Increase client engagement by focusing on changing the brain - not simply decreasing anxiety

You will learn proven tools and techniques to:

  • Identify and treat the roots of anxiety in both the amygdala and the cortex
  • Explain “the language of the amygdala” in an accessible, straight forward way
  • Identify how the cortex contributes to anxiety, and empower clients with strategies to resist anxiety-igniting cognitions
  • Therapy is about change - it’s about creating a new self - and incorporating the concept of “rewiring the brain” is a potent method for stopping anxiety in its tracks.
