Treatment for anxiety typically includes:education about the nature and function of anxiety and how anxiety becomes problematic vs normative, relaxation strategies, worry control strategies , enhanced coping skills to recover from panic/ acute anxiety episodes, and relapse prevention strategies so you can ‘be your own therapist’ if anxiety becomes problematic for you in the future post-termination of therapy.
In CBT we identify problematic behaviors and thinking patterns that contribute and serve to maintain depression and anxiety. For example, in treatment for depression, you will learn how depression affects your day to day and how your actions and your thought patterns affect your mood. Therapy is typically short-term (18-24 weeks).
