Exposure & Response Prevention
ERP is the magic of CBT, and yet many clinicians who say they provide CBT are reluctant to do ERP with their clients. This session takes the mystery away and makes ERP logical, accessible, and even fun. Have your doubts that providing ERP is being kind to our clients? This session will make you a believer.

Join three psychiatrists to learn about the treatment of adults with medicine; the treatment of children with medicine; and how to work with clients with a history of substance abuse disorder and anxiety.

Anxiety Treatment Centers
Anxiety Treatment Center On-boarding
We have heard over and over that anxiety treatment centers have a hard time finding great therapists knowledgeable about evidenced-based treatment for anxiety and OCD. After years of work, Elizabeth DuPont Spencer and Kimberly Morrow have developed an affordable, effective on-line course to be sure clinicians know how to deliver good CBT for anxiety and OCD. We are now providing training to all new hires at several anxiety treatment centers, and all of the directors are really pleased with the results. Here is what Debra Kissen, Ph.D., CEO/ Chief Exposure Officer has to say about our course:
At Light on Anxiety CBT Treatment Center in Chicago, we have chosen Anxiety Training’s CBT for Anxiety and OCD, a 12-session on-line training, to onboard our new therapists. We couldn’t be happier with the results! Not only does this training save my center money and time, but our therapists have been really happy with the training as well. The improvement in my clinician’s scores between their pre-and post-test results shows that CBT for Anxiety and OCD provides the essential information necessary for them to quickly and confidently get started treating clients with these disorders using evidence-based treatments.
Debra has had success hiring master’s level clinicians who already have great people and empathy skills, and then has had them take our training so that they are able to jump right into providing ERP at her three busy treatment centers.
Our 12-session, 12 CE, online training course includes pre- and post-tests so clinic directors and clinicians themselves can immediately see that they have learned important information from taking the course.
