Anxiety Toolbox is a fast-paced four-session (orientation and 3 content sessions) seminar specifically designed to help people who struggle with a variety of anxiety-related concerns (e.g., panic attacks, Generalized Anxiety, test anxiety). The goal of this seminar is to provide education on anxiety and to teach coping skills for managing anxiety symptoms. The three seminars are divided into content that builds upon itself.  The first meeting is an orientation to learn about our virtual services. In session one, we take a broad look at 4 symptom clusters of anxiety and introduce a method for slowing down and disentangling the experience of anxiety. In session 2, we focus on increasing insight on the thought patterns that impact anxiety; increasing awareness and understanding are major tools in addressing anxiety. In session 3, we develop alternative responses to anxiety and create a personalized action plan for managing anxiety. Please call CAPS for more information about starting dates for each workshop.
