Breaking the Generational Cycle of Worry: Treating Anxiety Disorders
Lyons, Lynn, LICSW
J & K Seminars / Seminar on DVD / 2017-10-01 / X72917
price: $137.75 (may be subject to change)
Not in stock - ships in 1 to 2 weeks.

This workshop will provide concrete and often counter-intuitive strategies that normalize worry for families. It will provide an “umbrella approach” that is applicable to all of the anxiety disorders, including Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

Lyons will also describe simple, process-based strategies for interrupting patterns of thinking that inadvertently support the avoidance of anxious symptoms.
