In this webinar, we focused on these and related specific targets for intervention and illustrated how practitioners can best prescribe exercise to engage these targets and augment their interventions. The workshop began with an overview of the evidence, helping practitioners develop language for providing a credible exercise intervention rationale.

Growing evidence points to the efficacy of exercise for enhancing treatment outcomes for individuals suffering from mood- and anxiety-related problems. The literature on exercise makes clear that when people engage in exercise, they are more resilient to stress and better able to learn and consolidate or retain new learning.

We then turned to the specifics of developing an effective exercise prescription, attending to how practitioners must balance efficacy with feasibility and safety. Practitioners learned how to determine whether exercise is safe, how to progress training to the targeted intensity, and how to work with the patient to select appropriate activities.

Next, we discussed strategies for helping patients understand and overcome the perils of good intentions and the pitfalls that derail exercise attempts.

Practitioners also learned how to help patients manipulate their environment to maintain motivation for exercise and how to develop and implement self-monitoring strategies to facilitate this.

Learning Objectives:

At the completion of this session, participants will:

  1. Know the efficacy of exercise for treating anxiety and mood disorders
  2. Know the role of exercise in resilience to stress and cognitive enhancement
  3. Know motivational strategies for enhancing the initiation and maintenance of regular exercise
