The Concept of Differentiation Would you like to receive Lynn Lyons – 3-Day Intensive Workshop Helping Anxious Kids ? Description: Anxiety is a very persistent master. When it moves into families, it takes over daily routines, schoolwork, and recreation. Depression is often close on its heels.The most frequent comment I hear from anxious families is “no one told them what to DO.” After multi-session assessment or months of appointments, they still didn’t have a clear plan or understanding of HOW to respond when anxiety shows up. Imagine being able to offer families immediate and effective tasks to weaken anxiety’s grip! What if, during a first session, you could give your clients the information and a road map to change the powerful patterns of anxiety disorders? Join Lynn Lyons, LICSW, internationally recognized psychotherapist, author and speaker, in an intensive training. She will teach you HOW to interrupt anxiety’s cognitive patterns with simple, process-based strategies. You’ll focus on concrete and often counter-intuitive strategies that normalize worry for families and provide an “umbrella approach” that applies to all anxiety disorders. Leave this workshop with new techniques to break the anxiety cycle: Untangle complicated presentations of anxiety Combat the challenges of somatic symptoms Avoid the big mistakes with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder The importance of prioritizing interventions … and MORE!
