The Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) approach is the most effective treatment available for anxiety disorders. The theory behind ERP is well supported, and few mental health treatments enjoy more scientific support.  Unfortunately, ERP is not used by most practitioners, leading clients with anxiety disorders to suffer needlessly while less adequate treatments or only medical approaches are applied to their care. This workshop will go beyond the theoretical background for ERP and will focus on practice. With multiple case examples, role plays, and exercises, participants will get a firsthand experience of what it is like to do ERP with clients. All of the anxiety disorders, OCD, and PTSD will be reviewed and case studies will be explored showing the ins and outs of using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and ERP in an intensive format. Designed to be used in weekly sessions, the techniques that will be discussed will showcase how and why to use ERP to get best results with your clients.

If you attended Dr McGrath's previous presentations about the best practices for treating anxiety disorders then this presentation will add to it and will delve into the actual disorders in more depth.  The program will cover treatment plans, client resistance, family therapy that is necessary when a family member suffers from anxiety, and overcoming your own concerns about using ERP with your clients.

This will be hands on, practical and interactive workshop. You will leave with a toolbox full of techniques ready to apply the very next day that you see clients. If you want to achieve fast and positive outcomes with your anxious clients then this is a workshop that you will not want to miss!
