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.
