Description

Do you feel overwhelmed by the severity of your client’s anxiety symptoms?

Does their need to seek reassurance and perform compulsions prevent them from moving forward in therapy? You are not alone if you find your clients experiencing the same symptoms after several therapy sessions, if they get stuck on the “why’s” of anxiety, or if they are unable to take meaningful action against their anxiety.

Join award winning experts in anxiety and OCD—Kimberly Morrow, LSCW & Elizabeth DuPont Spencer, LCSW-C—for this intensive 2-Day Anxiety Certification Course to learn the gold standard of care for treating GAD, Panic Disorder, OCD, Social Anxiety, and Phobias.  You’ll learn to skillfully integrate CBT and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) to climb over obstacles in therapy and gain confidence in your ability to treat the most symptomatic, anxious clients on your caseload.
