Master the foundational anxiety treatment techniques that make therapy
modalities like CBT, DBT, ACT and somatic therapies so successful...

And earn DOUBLE certification in anxiety treatment and
mindfulness-informed therapy—all in one self-paced online course
 

You’ve heard about the power of mindful awareness for treating anxiety. Now, discover how to apply it in therapy in an individualized way that helps clients immediately see the positive impact on their symptoms, and their lives.

Treating anxiety with mindfulness tools is NOT about trying to change problematic behavior. It’s about strengthening the neural pathways that promote positive emotions, focused attention, and self-compassion. The desired behavior follows.

When you give your clients mindfulness exercises to practice between sessions, you give them the tools to:

  • Activate the insula region of the brain so they can control shallow breathing, tightening muscles, and other physical symptoms of anxiety...

  • Shrink their amygdala to lessen fear and anxious arousal, and

  • Increase frontal cortex activity (emotional self-regulation) so they can more easily manage worrying thoughts and feelings.

 

The best part? When you change the brain, new habits and positive behaviors stick way better than trying to muscle through cognitive behavioral changes on willpower alone...

Making mindfulness techniques the perfect complement to your practice.

Enroll in this online certification training course today to discover how to use dozens of customizable mindfulness tools that help each of your clients reduce anxiety quickly, and for good.

This part of the course provides all the training you need to become a CCATP and enhance your practice.

 
Section I | Rewire the Anxious Brain: Neuroscience-Informed Treatment of Anxiety, Panic and Worry
 

Dr. Janene M. Donarski integrates brain-based strategies for calming the anxious mind that motivate lasting change in your clients. Her approach also promotes adherence to treatment and strengthens the therapeutic alliance.

Using Neuroscience in the Treatment of Anxiety
  • What we know about anxiety-based disorders
  • Scientific explanations, evidence, authority that destigmatize difficulties
  • Helping clients take responsibility for their well-being

Enhancing Engagement in Treatment
  • Don’t neglect the therapeutic relationship!
  • Address the challenges of anxious clients
  • Guide the process using client’s goals
  • How to maintain motivation

Neuroplasticity
  • Define Neuroplasticity in everyday language
  • Therapy is about creating a new self
  • “Rewiring” as an accessible concept for change
  • Re-consolidation: the modification of emotional memories

Identify Two Neural Pathways to Anxiety
  • Amygdala – bottom-up triggering of emotion, physicality of anxiety
  • Cortex – top-down emotion generation based in cognition
  • How anxiety is initiated in each pathway and how pathways influence each other

Client Friendly Explanations
  • Fight/flight/freeze responses
  • The “language of the amygdala”
  • Anxiety and the cortex
  • Help clients recognize the two pathways to anxiety

Neuroplasticity in the Amygdala
  • Breathing techniques to reduce activation
  • Exposure as opportunities for the amygdala to learn
  • Combatting avoidance
  • Push through anxiety to change the amygdala

Neuroplasticity in the Cortex
  • The healthy (adaptive) use of worry in the cortex
  • Recognize and modify the impact of uncertainty
  • Left hemisphere techniques – cognitive defusion, coping thoughts, fighting anticipation
  • Right hemisphere techniques – imagery, music

Neuroplasticity and Medications for Anxiety Disorders, OCD, PTSD, Depression
  • The myth of the chemical imbalance
  • The danger of sedating the brain with benzodiazepines
  • Promoting neuroplasticity with SSRIs, SNRIs
  • The effectiveness of CBT and meds

Moving Beyond Diagnostic Categories to Focus on Anxiety Pathways
  • Anxiety is a component of many diagnoses
  • Amygdala – and cortex-based techniques help in other disorders
  • Targeting brain-based symptoms rather than disorders
  • Worry, obsessions, rumination respond to similar cortex-based techniques
  • Panic, phobic responses, and compulsions respond to amygdala-based techniques

Research, Risks and Limitations
  • Empirical versus clinical and anecdotal evidence
  • Clinical considerations for specific clients and settings
  • Efficacy of particular interventions may vary

Section II | Ten Best-Ever Anxiety Treatment Techniques
 

Methods that control physiology, reduce tension, and offset panic or acute anxiety can be simple to learn but challenging to apply. Bestselling author and anxiety expert Dr. Margaret Wehrenberg gives you a complete set of tools proven to reduce anxiety:

Assessment and Differential Diagnosis
  • The causes of panic, generalized anxiety and social anxiety that help select treatment

  • Clear the mind of ruminative and racing thoughts
  • Know when anger triggers anxiety and how to work with it in worried clients
  • How to stop worry before it happens

Techniques for Managing Social Anxiety
  • Apply the “Three Deep Breaths and Good Preparation” model to construct treatment goals for social anxiety
  • Structure cognitive change through planned “counter-cognitions”
  • Apply ‘in vivo exposure’ techniques that optimize recovery from social anxiety

Limitations of the Research and Potential Risks
  • Controlled studies on the human brain structure and function are limited by challenges of studying the brain in action
  • New studies continually modify our understanding of how neurotransmitters interact and affect cognition, emotion and behavior
  • There are no significant risks associated with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
  • Assessment of an individual’s capacity to understand and utilize an intervention should always precede employment of the technique
