The workshop will start with a brief overview of the cognitive-behavioral conceptualization of anxiety (to serve as a refresher for those familiar with general CBT, using the context specific to anxiety disorders). Within this portion, we'll touch on some of the specific targets for treatment of different anxiety disorders, though the majority of discussion will center around anxiety in a generalized sense. We'll explore a number of classic cognitive and behavioral strategies, using case examples to highlight when the focus should be more in one domain than the other and the connection between them. I'll provide concrete interventions and share some "go to" resources for additional tools. Finally, we'll open up the discussion for case consultation, whereby I will facilitate the collective wisdom of the group offering thoughts and strategies to one another for implementation with students the next week.
