This will be a four week workshop held every Monday. The workshop will be a small group of people who suffer from anxiety attacks and through clinician and peer support will learn how to you can train yourself to handle anxiety symptoms with powerful techniques that bring chronic anxiety disorders to an end. This workshop will look at each of the different types of symptoms, suggest adaptive ways of responding to each, and then show you some methods for handling all of them in moments of high anxiety or panic.
The key to handling anxiety symptoms is to train yourself to:
1. recognize them for what they are, and
2. respond in ways that actually calm, rather than aggravate, your body and your mood.
This workshop will focus on THOUGHTS, BEHAVIORS, and PHYSICAL SENSATIONS.
