Workshop Description

Therapists are supposed to make clients safe and secure, creating a cozy haven from a cruel world, right? Well, when it comes to treating anxiety and OCD, growing evidence shows that the quickest, most effective approach involves instructing them to ramp up their fears while telling themselves how much they welcome the experience.

Join internationally-recognized expert and author Reid Wilson, Ph.D. to study what cutting edge research is showing us about the possibility of rapid change. Dr. Wilson will outline the treatment strategy, step-by-step, and illustrate each stage with brief, professionally videotaped segments of therapist-client interaction within the first two sessions of treatment.
