Description

Treating anxiety is more challenging these days...  In order to more effectively help your clients, you need the latest research on how COVID was the “switch” that shone a light on emerging anxiety issues and how it triggered old or existing ones. To top it all off, existential fears have been exacerbated by years of media bombardment, constant economic, racial, and political unrest, and even the worry of large-scale war. This recorded session, with highly sought-after international public speaker Dr. Marwa Azab, will have you dive deeper into that research as she walks you through the effects of burnout, anxious fog, along with other new faces of anxiety and how they impact your treatment methods.

You’ll be able to: 

  • Formulate more efficient therapeutic plans using your revised understanding of anxiety disorders 
  • Differentiate client's legitimate health concerns from health-related anxieties 
  • Assess how Long-COVID can affect anxiety and how to use that information to devise a more successful treatment plan for your client 

Don’t miss your opportunity to learn how anxiety has changed and how you can improve your treatment methods with these latest developments.
