Kimberly Morrow, LCSW and Elizabeth DuPont Spencer, LCSW-C
About the instructor
Kimberly Morrow, LCSW and Elizabeth DuPont Spencer, LCSW-C are both in private practice. Kimberly is in Erie, PA and Elizabeth is in North Bethesda, MD. Each has 25 years of experience using cognitive behavioral therapy with exposure and response prevention to treat anxiety and OCD. They provide online and in person training to therapists across the country.
CBT for Anxiety and OCD with Three Small Group Question and Answer sessions is a practical, step-by-step webinar as well as a resource for therapists to turn to when working with clients who are struggling. In an engaging, friendly style we provide clear steps based on the evidence-based principals of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Mounting evidence shows not only the tremendous numbers of people with these treatable mental health conditions but also the reluctance of therapists to use exposure and response prevention (ERP). Therapists are natural helpers and ERP can feel foreign and dangerous. This webinar includes interviews with expert clinicians from all over the country, demonstration role-plays of treatment strategies, and interviews with clients suffering from anxiety and OCD explaining how the treatment worked for them. We have trained hundreds of therapists across the United States and helped them become confident and competent in providing CBT. Our strength is in helping you understand why and how to do this work. Now you can learn these skills at home with our comprehensive webinar and provide treatment that will succeed for your clients. Once you sign up for the class you will receive information about registering for small group Q and A sessions.

What People Are Saying:
At Light On Anxiety CBT Treatment Center in Chicago, we have chosen AnxietyTraining.com's CBT for Anxiety and OCD, a 12- session online 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.
