Course Overview

Anxiety disorders are the most common psychiatric disorders, affecting millions of adults. These disorders fill people's lives with overwhelming anxiety, fear, and uncertainty. It is common for people to experience mild, brief anxiety caused by stressful events like job interviews or first dates. However, individuals with anxiety disorders experience symptoms that are out of proportion to any actual danger or their symptoms persist for significant periods of time. Anxiety disorders can become progressively worse if not treated. Further, anxiety disorders frequently occur in conjunction with other psychiatric or physical illnesses, which can make anxiety symptoms worse. This course provides you with an overview of the signs and symptoms of anxiety disorders, the most effective psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatments available, and recent advances that have impacted our understanding and treatment of anxiety disorders. The blend of instructive information and practical scenarios will help you to apply these key concepts in your own setting. The goal of this educational program is to provide nursing, social work, counseling, and psychology professionals in health and human services settings with skills for diagnosing and treating anxiety disorders.
