At Light On Anxiety CBT Treatment Center in Chicago, we have chosen AnxietyTraining.com'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 clinicians’ 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.
