Course Description

Therapists have always needed practical skills to treat anxiety disorders, but the pandemic added problems such as long-COVID, cave syndrome and ambient anxiety that significantly raised rates of anxiety. This pragmatic webinar will explore the latest research on how neurobiology underlies the symptoms of anxiety – both the familiar and the new post-COVID anxieties. It will focus on practical methods that relieve symptoms of generalized anxiety, panic, and social anxiety disorders, to increase each clinician’s repertoire for handling these disorders. This class will examine the pros, cons, and challenges of teletherapy in the treatment of anxiety disorders, so that these evidence-based methods can help your clients cope in this post-pandemic world.

Margaret Wehrenberg Psy.D.

is a licensed Clinical Psychologist whose 5 decades of work in the mental health field include her groundbreaking work on anxiety that has influenced psychotherapists, business leaders, elected officials, the legal system and educators around the world. Her programs on managing anxiety have helped over 50,000 clinicians to offer effective therapy for anxiety and depression to clients of all ages.

As a sought-after trainer, she has taught in-person sessions throughout the United States and internationally. Dr. Wehrenberg consistently receives the highest ratings for her dynamic, pragmatic, evidenced-based programs.

As an author, Dr. Wehrenberg was the first to publish for psychotherapists about the underlying neurobiology of anxiety disorders and how psychotherapy can effectively “use the brain to change the brain” of anxiety and depression. Her 12 books on the treatment of anxiety and depression, most published by W.W. Norton, have been translated into 8 languages, and The 10 Best-Ever Anxiety Management Techniques remains a best-seller.

As a private consultant for varied groups, including government agencies, political candidates, doctoral candidates, religious organizations, insurance companies and financial planning organizations, Margaret has worked with individuals and organizations to diminish the negative impact of anxiety as it affects personal and organizational performance. She works with professionals to utilize “optimal anxiety” to achieve peak performance.

Dr. Wehrenberg has a personal commitment to giving back to the community. She has consulted at no cost to high school teachers and counselors; has trained peer leaders in risk identification and reduction of anxiety, suicide and depression; has spoken before attorney groups on depression among lawyers; and volunteers to speak to parents and community groups on topics of anxiety, including the impact of social media in creating anxiety.
