Anxiety and Depression Online Conference by Jennifer L. Abel
It’s hard to help our clients overcome anxiety and depression.
The time we have with our clients is brief, and the interventions we offer have to combat thousands of negative thoughts they’ll experience when they’re outside of our offices — thoughts that can lead to spirals of worry and panic that can ruin their lives.
We need effective, proven techniques that our clients can use on their own to overcome these two incredibly common disorders.
That’s why we’ve brought together leading experts Margaret Wehrenberg, Reid Wilson, Judith Belmont, Jennifer Abel and more, for this Anxiety and Depression Online Conference.
Through 5 information packed sessions, you’ll learn powerful, practical techniques from evidence-based approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, Somatic Exercises, Yoga, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Schema Therapy. These are strategies you can immediately apply with your clients — so they can heal and maintain mind and body well-being.
Walk away with confidence that you can help your clients break free of anxiety and depression!

More information about Medical:
Medicine is the science and practice of establishing the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness.
Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease,
typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics, and ionizing radiation, amongst others.
Medicine has been around for thousands of years, during most of which it was an art (an area of skill and knowledge) frequently having connections to the religious and
philosophical beliefs of local culture. For example, a medicine man would apply herbs and say prayers for healing, or an ancient philosopher and physician would apply bloodletting according to the theories of humorism.
In recent centuries, since the advent of modern science, most medicine has become a combination of art and science (both basic and applied, under the umbrella of medical science).
While stitching technique for sutures is an art learned through practice, the knowledge of what happens at the cellular and molecular level in the tissues being stitched arises through science.
