Four-Day CBT Certification in the Treatment of Anxiety and Depression (Part 1 - Anxiety)

Martin Antony, PhD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars, Inc

Please note: the 4-day seminar is sold out. There are still a few spaces in the second (Depression) module.

Part I Anxiety, Monday, November 4 and Tuesday November 5, 2013 at the YWCA Elm Centre, 87 Elm Street, Toronto

Part 1 (November 4 – 5)
Led by Martin M. Antony, PhD

The first two days of the four-Day CBT Certification in the Treatment of Anxiety and Depression provide training in evidence-based strategies for addressing a range of anxiety and related disorders in adults and children. Dr. Antony will emphasize the importance of case formulation and core treatment principles that cut across anxiety-based problems, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobias, and health anxiety.

You will learn about effective cognitive-behavioural methods, including exposure-based techniques and relaxation-based treatments, as well as new and emerging psychological approaches (e.g., mindfulness and acceptance-based strategies). Use of medication will also be reviewed, with an emphasis on how they can be combined with psychological treatments. Options for dealing with treatment resistance (such as motivational interviewing) will be discussed, as will strategies for dealing with complex cases and comorbidity. Techniques will be illustrated using video-recorded therapy sessions, and participants will receive a detailed handout.

Part 2 (December 2 – 3)
Led by Peter Bieling, PhD

Depression and symptoms of depression are the “common cold” of mental health, with both prevalence and incidence continuing to rise. The scope of the problem is enormous, and the breadth of clinical presentations of depression, just as troubling for many clinicians. Over two days, you will learn about two well-studied strategies for managing depression: CBT and mindfulness and acceptance approaches. To match the many presentations and severities of depression, a variety of approaches will be discussed, ranging from simple self-monitoring and bibliotherapy, to behavioural approaches, to full treatment protocols for acute depression. As well, Dr. Bieling will address the maintenance of gains and relapse prevention. Video and case vignettes will be used to demonstrate techniques throughout the workshop.

Please see the bottom of this page for the full agenda for the four days.

From panic attacks to chronic worry, more than 40 million Americans struggle with anxiety, making it one of the most common reasons people seek psychological help. Now, anxiety experts Martin M. Antony and Peter Norton provide sufferers with a state-of-the-art program for conquering their worries, phobias, and obsessions. The Anti-Anxiety Workbook offers an unrivalled toolkit of proven strategies drawn from cognitive-behavioral therapy, the most effective treatment for anxiety. Readers use convenient self-assessment worksheets to identify their worry triggers and keep track of their anxious moments in weekly journals. Hands-on exercises help them change the beliefs and behaviors that cause anxiety and worsen symptoms. Other techniques provide ways to achieve a new level of calm.
