Anxiety disorders affect over 40 million adults in any given year. Cognitive behavioral therapy has been shown to be the empirically validated psychotherapy treatment of choice for anxiety disorders.

This workshop will review the relevant concepts in both cognitive and behavioral therapy as they apply to anxiety disorders. Workshop attendees will learn how to develop a thorough case conceptualization of anxiety disorder using the CBT model.

The CBT treatment of individual anxiety disorders,  including Specific Phobia, Social Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder, as well as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder will be covered.
