Description

You’re working with an anxious client, but seem to be making little progress… you could be missing some key under-lying factors like PTSD or trauma that prevent you from making any headway with their anxiety symptoms. In fact, they could be exacerbating them. You need to understand the neuroscience behind how trauma and PTSD can affect your clients anxiety and how maximizing participation in early treatment can alleviate symptoms of PTSD and trauma and let you address the root cause of their anxiety.

In this recorded session, Dr. Janene Donarski will help you apply practical neuroscience-integrated treatment models like EMDR, CBT, and Exposure Therapy to work through roadblocks with the resistant or avoidant client and help them reduce the physiological threat response that comes with anxiety.
You’ll learn skills like:

  • Utilizing neuroception, interoception, and self-regulation to improve symptom management and client level of functioning
  • Polyvagal theory, exercises, and worksheets to help clients manage freeze responses and increase body-awareness
  • Using exposure therapy and cognitive reframing to reduce client’s tendencies to avoid triggering situations or environments
  • Creating hierarchies to prioritize symptoms and organize treatment methods
  • And so much MORE!

Don’t miss this opportunity to integrate neuroscience-informed treatments into your practice and start making breakthroughs with your client today!
