Generalized Anxiety Disorder can be a challenging disorder to treat, because clients may have multiple worries and those worries can be relentless in their efforts to engage both our clients and ourselves in the therapy session. Because the nature of worry is always future oriented, it can be difficult to figure out how to develop exposures to something that isn't actually happening. This webinar will explain how to change our client’s relationship with worry including challenging their beliefs, playing with worry, developing exposures, as well as using visualization and scripts.
