It's hard to help our clients overcome anxiety and depression.

The time we have with our clients is brief, and the interventions we offer have to combat thousands of negative thoughts they'll experience when they're outside of our offices — thoughts that can lead to spirals of worry and panic that can ruin their lives.

We need effective, proven techniques that our clients can use on their own to overcome these two incredibly common disorders.

That's why we've brought together leading experts Margaret Wehrenberg, Reid Wilson, Judith Belmont, Jennifer Abel and more, for this Anxiety and Depression Online Conference.

Through 5 information packed sessions, you'll learn powerful, practical techniques from evidence-based approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, Somatic Exercises, Yoga, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Schema Therapy. These are strategies you can immediately apply with your clients — so they can heal and maintain mind and body well-being.

Walk away with confidence that you can help your clients break free of anxiety and depression!
