About the course

Panic attacks, social anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), phobias, psychosexual problems, obsessional compulsive disorders (OCD), raised stress levels and anxiety related to work, money, health, surgery, childbirth, terror threats and dying are a problem for increasing numbers of people – causing untold suffering and costing the taxpayer huge sums of money.

Prolonged and excessive anxiety also makes us susceptible to a wide range of mental health disorders and physical illnesses. But we needn't put ourselves – or those we care for – at risk like this.

On this popular course, Joe Griffin shows you the best ways to reduce anxiety and successfully treat a wide range of anxiety-disorders. He also explains the evolutionary basis of anxiety and looks at why it isn't just ill health that causes anxiety in normal people but anxiety that causes ill health (for example, when raised anxiety levels suppress the immune system).

This indisputable mind/body link makes it essential that all health and welfare professionals are equipped with the knowledge and skills to reduce anxiety in people quickly – in order to reduce suffering and offer more effective treatment and care.



What you will gain from the day:

  • New information about the biological and psychological forces that make people anxious – and how these affect treatment
  • Techniques and knowledge that will increase your confidence and effectiveness when treating panic attacks, social anxiety, phobias, PTSD, psychosexual problems, OCD, and anxiety related to health, death, surgery and childbirth
  • Ways to measure anxiety levels
  • An understanding of why anxiety-related illnesses are increasing
  • The most effective techniques for reducing anxiety
  • Why therapy for anxiety disorders should be brief – the benefits compared to drug treatments
  • An understanding of the ‘fast phobia cure’ or ‘rewind’ technique and how to use it to resolve post traumatic stress – often in as little one session
  • How to innoculate against the harmful effects of stress
  • Ways to reduce the drugs needed in surgery and childbirth
  • How to deal with panic attacks
  • Ways to reduce your own anxiety levels
  • ...and much more

 

Who should attend?

  • All health and welfare professionals:  if you have to deal with, treat or care for people suffering from ongoing anxiety or an anxiety order, and wish to be more effective, this day is for you
  • Anyone who works or lives in a stressful environment that raises anxiety levels, or is simply curious about more effective and rapid ways to reduce anxiety
