Many of your patients suffer from anxiety. But besides drugs, what tools do you have to help them? This highly-practical "triple accredited" CME works through family practice case studies of generalized anxiety disorder (chronic worry) and common contemporary fears. The focus is on ten-minute techniques that can be effortlessly integrated into normal primary care appointments. Participants are encouraged to discuss real-life cases, and are shown how to weave effective CBT techniques into their standard family practice routines. Note: Many of the non-pharmacological tools taught are very important to the resilience of physicians, along with that of their children and other family members.
Learn to pinpoint key anxiety-causing beliefs.
Learn highly-modular treatment protocols.
Learn to match interventions to individual patients.
