More than training, a compelling way to live life
Anxiety disorders and OCD are the most common psychiatric disorder in the United States, affecting about 40 million adults and up to 19% of children. Around the world, 615 million people have anxiety and depression, according to the World Health Organization. However, only about one-third of people in the U.S. are able to access effective treatment. On average, it can take 14 years for a person with OCD to get a correct diagnosis and treatment. Untreated anxiety and OCD are a terrible burden to individuals, families and the national economy as a whole due to lost productivity.
We have each been practicing CBT for anxiety and OCD, using exposure and response prevention, for over 25 years. The fact that many clinicians across the country still do not have access to good, evidence-based training, energized us to do something about it. While we each teach, supervise, and give workshops in our local areas, we hope to finally give many more therapists the training they need with easy to understand courses and secure, on-line case consultation.
Learn why panic disorder is often such a debilitating problem, and how using interoceptive exposure works. We will help you realize how to partner with the family of a person with severe OCD even when the family is used to reassuring or avoiding triggers. How about how to make a hierarchy for emetophobia (fear of vomiting)? Or how to treat sleep anxiety in kids?
CBT for anxiety and OCD is simple but not easy. We want to help you become capable and confident in your ability to motivate and treat clients. Our approach is grounded in care and compassion for the suffering of our clients with anxiety and OCD. Empathy is a crucial part of our work. Our clients love working with us and they will love working with you too!
