Understanding Anxiety is an informative and skills building group program, especially designed for adults.
Anxiety Disorders are among the most common psychological problems, estimated to affect nearly a third of the general population at some point in their lifetimes (Kessler et al.,2005). Nearly everyone feels anxious when they’re confronted with a challenge. Mild anxiety, like that experienced before an exam or a sporting event, can help people perform to the best of their ability. However, when anxiety is more prolonged and intense, and negatively impacts on day-to-day life, it’s a problem.
This five session program uses evidence based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy strategies to demystify anxiety, and help participants better manage the physiological, emotional, and cognitive components of anxiety and worry. It also addresses related issues of communicating effectively, and managing other feelings such as anger and depression.
Increase understanding of anxiety disorders and improve stress management. Provide practical strategies to:
o Improve relaxation and confidence
o Manage body-related anxiety symptoms
o Manage unhelpful thinking processes
o Aid communication
o Assist with fearful avoidance
