Illness related anxiety is very common for clients and caregivers. Some may have the coping skills but have difficulty accessing them when in distress. Others may not have a solid foundation of where to begin. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy offers practical, often easy-to-use methods to relieve anxiety. In turn, it empowers our clients to have a set of tools they can use in many daily life experiences. Participants in this workshop will receive an opportunity to practice and apply CBT skills and leave with a set of practical take-home worksheets that can be introduced into their daily practice with clients.
