"This workshop will increase your understanding of GAD and provide a range of practical tools and strategies to enable you
to recognise and treat the disorder among your clients."
– Dr Sarah Edelman
Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is the hardest type of anxiety to treat because the client believes their worry is helpful… That it will prepare them for the worst-case scenario, or somehow deter future unwanted events.
It never works. But still… They just can’t let it go.
So, you—and your client—end up stuck. Unable to move forward in treatment until you can find a way to help them overcome their fierce resistance to change.
Fortunately, the last 15 years of research have expanded our understanding of GAD…
Including the processes that underlie it and how to use a range of contemporary CBT treatment strategies to get to the factors that underlie the disorder.
Now, in Dr Sarah Edelman’s FINAL live training event, you’ll discover strategies to successfully challenge client’s worry so they can finally release their iron grip on anxiety.
Dr Edelman will reveal psychoeducational tools, behavioral experiments, worry awareness strategies, mindfulness approaches, worry exposure techniques, and more…
All of which you can use with clients immediately!
Register today for this live training to develop a deeper understanding of GAD and the confidence to use a range of contemporary CBT treatment strategies to address the root of this disorder.
Praise for Dr Edelman’s recent presentations of this training
“Sarah is a very experienced and competent facilitator who knows her material well. She can clearly convey this, and I greatly valued her clear communication, knowledge, experience, and professionalism. I got so much from today including amazing resources to use right away.”
“I really appreciated the mini summaries Sarah did throughout the day – helpful for consolidating learning. Loved the perfect mix of theory and practice. A perfect training day really!”
“The demonstrations are great – so much more engaging than didactic presentation of material. Also really liked use of real worries of our own rather than examples – made it more experiential and engaging. Sarah is friendly, professional, and well prepared. Thank you, Sarah!”
"Thank you. Sarah's presentation was very helpful. Lots of clear information, great resources and good demonstrations of how to apply techniques."
"Yet another highly professional PD from PDP. Sarah is so experienced and imparted knowledge, skill, and resources. I gained so much for my practice. Please have her present more topics for PDP!
