JUST CE74 - Anxiety - Practical Intervention Strategies

Anxiety represents our body?s natural alarm system, signalling to us the possibility of danger. When this response arises too frequently or intensely and doesn?t match actual situations of danger, it can interfere with life and cause great distress. While every person experiences anxiety, it is estimated that over a quarter of the population will experience anxiety at levels that cause distress in their lives. There is also an increasing concern for rising anxiety among children, youth and elders. This workshop will explore when anxiety is adaptive and in order, compared to when it becomes disordered. Participants will learn practical and accessible strategies which can be applied across the lifespan and address the physical, emotional, cognitive and social aspects of anxiety.
