Description

Course Format

Recorded webinar.


Our world is changing rapidly and we have had to adapt. In these uncertain times, it is normal for worry and anxiety to surface but it may be surprising how they have shown up for you and your clients. Some people have been able to take many risks while others have not left their house. Some have enjoyed the slower pace of quarantine only to experience panic upon reentry. Join Kimberly Morrow, LCSW for a dynamic conversation about how to live fully in these uncertain times. You will discover two things anxiety is afraid of as well as practice simple skills to calm an anxious mind. You will also learn how to take your client from their fear zone to their growth zone.
 

Learning objectives:

  1. Identify two elements anxiety needs to grow.
  2. Implement at least five strategies to calm an anxious mind.
  3. Articulate how to move from the fear zone to the growth zone.
