Although it’s true that nearly everyone has been experiencing elevated stress recently, sometimes anxiety becomes more distressing or starts to interfere in people’s lives.
This webinar presented by Concordia professor Adam Radomsky will highlight the differences between stress and anxiety disorders, with a focus on how different types of anxiety-related problems can get in the way of living well. Rather than focusing on stress management strategies (which can indeed be helpful to many), a review of science-based approaches to treating more serious anxiety disorders will be discussed.
Professor Radomsky will include a brief overview of the different anxiety disorders (e.g., panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder) as well as some related mental disorders which are anxiety-related such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, health anxiety disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Descriptions of the best psychological therapies shown to successfully treat these problems will be provided.
Strategies to find evidence-based psychological therapies will also be discussed before a Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
