Anxiety affects one in six individuals, and is very commonly
found alongside other mental and physical disorders. In daily
practice, anxiety is frequently under-recognised and under-treated.
For problems such as generalised anxiety, panic disorder and
phobias, NICE recommends cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) as the
most effective intervention in both primary and secondary care
settings. This workshop teaches you how to help patients modify
unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that are inadvertently
maintaining their anxiety. It will also help you to decide when to
refer patients for joint or further working by other professionals
within or outside of your own clinical team.
