Muscles tensing, stomachs dropping, and hearts pounding…many of your anxious clients are uncomfortable in their own skins.
And while cognitive approaches impact anxious thoughts and feelings, without tackling distressing bodily sensations that can lead to avoidance in clients your treatment could fail to
deliver long-lasting relief.

Watch Dr. Debra Alvis, one of PESI’s most seasoned and accomplished trainers on somatic and contemplative practices, and discover the breath and movement strategies, visual meditations, mindfulness techniques and relaxation skills training you need to skillfully help clients:
Don’t miss this chance to get the clear guidance and detailed instruction on this real-life application you need to help your clients overcome anxiety and the overwhelming bodily sensations that accompany it.
