The Mindful Way through Anxiety: An Acceptance-Based Behavioral Therapy for GAD
Participate in this on-demand activity to learn and apply skills in acceptance-based behavioral therapies (ABBT). This includes dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy.
ABBT is effective in both reducing symptoms and promoting quality of life in a wide range of clinical conditions, including general anxiety disorder (GAD). That makes this webinar ideal for professionals and practice settings across mental health, primary care, nursing, social work, psychology, and more.
Our faculty outline an evidence-based ABBT model for understanding GAD. You review clinical strategies to target the central elements of this model, mindfulness exercises, strategies to decrease experiential avoidance, methods to clarify values and promote valued action, and much more.
