Using Mindfulness in the Treatment of Anxiety

Using Mindfulness in the Treatment of Anxiety
Thursday, January 21, 2016 9:09 am

This webinar focuses on mindfulness-based strategies in the treatment of GAD and comorbid disorders.  Principles and strategies from mindfulness and acceptance-based behavioral therapies have been adapted to develop an acceptance-based behavior therapy for GAD. This approach has demonstrated efficacy in reducing GAD, as well as worry, depressive symptoms, and comorbid diagnoses, while also increasing quality of life. It is grounded in behavioral principles and draws on traditional cognitive behavioral, as well as acceptance-based, strategies.

Continuing Education credits are not available for this archived webinar.
