Description

While anxiety disorders and major depression are distinct conditions, they present unique challenges to clinicians as comorbid disorders. Dr. Yapko will present new information about these conditions. He will also describe treatment issues, treatment dynamics, and ways to deliver fo- cused and goal-oriented interventions to clients who have both anxiety and depression. Professionals attending this seminar will leave feeling rejuvenated, validated, and empowered as active agents of therapeutic change. Despite the seriousness of the topic, Dr. Yapko intends to have fun in laying out many specific ways to make therapeutic work more focused and effective

Objectives

Participants will enhance their ability to:
  • Identify contributing factors to comorbid conditions from biological, psychological and sociological domains
  • Identify the key perceptual and social patterns that cause and maintain comorbid anxiety and depression
  • Determine where to begin treatment when identifying a client as comorbidly anxious and depressed
  • List and describe the role of attributional style patterns as comorbid risk factors
  • Develop specific active intervention strategies for facilitating recovery
  • Design structured homework assignments to facilitate the development of life-enhancing skills to reduce relapses
  • Integrate preventive approaches into treatment plans
