The fear of vomiting can become so all-consuming and terrifying that eating becomes a struggle and weight loss becomes dangerous. As sufferers try to protect themselves from throwing up, their world shrinks until it becomes impossible to work, go to school, or to socialize. This was Kay prior to treatment. In this webinar, Ken Goodman, author of The Emetophobia Manual, interviews Kay, one of his former patients. Together they discuss her remarkable healing journey and how she freed herself from the fear of vomit and reclaimed her life. This webinar was presented live - giving viewers a chance to be a part of the conversation with plenty of time to ask questions of both guests. This is a unique opportunity to hear from the perspective of a therapist and a patient as you learn the key components to change and success. The webinar is the second of a two-part series and it is recommended that you watch part one prior to watching part two.

Ken and ADAA

"Prior to joining ADAA I wrote and produced several self-help audio programs including The Anxiety Solution Series, a 12-hour audio course, Stress Free, a compilation of six guided meditations, and The Personal Growth Series, a collection of seven hypnosis sessions. Since becoming a member of  ADAA and being elected to their Board of Directors, I have completed two books: Break Free from Anxiety and The Emetophobia Manual. Although my practice in Los Angeles was focused on treating anxiety disorders, prior to joining ADAA, I did not know other therapists who shared the same specialty.  Attending my first ADAA conference in 2013 changed that. The presentations filled the gaps in my knowledge and I met and become friends with other experts in the field.  The articles I have written and the webinars and videos I have produced for the ADAA website on health anxiety, the fear of driving, and emetophobia, have helped thousands of people around the world and they have generated close to one hundred patients in my private practice.  ADAA is an organization that uniquely benefits anxiety sufferers, therapist, and researchers."
