Anxiety Disorders

Persistent worry prevents people from full and productive lives

Description

Anxiety disorders are the most prevalent mental health conditions in adults and children in the United States. Moreover, the nature of anxiety means that the person needing help will likely be reluctant to want to address the problem. Anxiety symptoms often masquerade as physical problems so the underlying cause can go undiagnosed for a very long time. Those receiving services are better supported when the helping professional understands the symptoms of anxiety and how they drive people’s behavior. This class explores ways to talk about anxiety as well as current treatment modalities and interventions.

Learning Objectives

  • What perpetuates anxiety and how does it manifest itself

  • Analyze types of anxiety disorders and DSM 5 criteria

  • Explore evidence-based treatments for anxiety disorders

  • Identify common techniques that help regulate anxiety symptoms
