Innovative CBT for Difficult Anxiety Disorders

Fall Workshop 2016

Presenter: 

David A. Clark, University of New Brunswick

Synopsis

Approximately two-thirds of individuals with an anxiety disorder achieve clinically significant symptom improvement with standard cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) but only 25% - 40% achieve symptom-free status. Thus a significant number of anxious clients (25%-33%) show a poor treatment response. This one-day workshop addresses the problem of failed or, at best, minimal response to CBT in the anxiety disorders. It begins with an analysis of treatment failure, the nature of treatment-resistant anxiety, and the limitations of standard CBT. The remainder of the workshop focuses on innovations in theory, assessment, case conceptualization, cognitive restructuring, and behavioral experiments that target specific features of treatment resistant anxiety. This is an intermediate level workshop intended for mental health professionals with at least a basic understanding of CBT and clinical experience in the treatment of anxiety.
