Description de l'évenementThe Anxiety, Panic, and Avoidance Behaviour Management Workshop is offered several times throughout the year in Ottawa, Ontario. The workshop runs for 2 and a 1/ 2 hours on a weekly basis and is facilitated by a mental health professional.Research has shown that cognitive-behavioural groups are an effective means of treating anxiety conditions. Some of the benefits include:
A safe environment in which to practice new skills
Social support when you experience setbacks and challenges
The opportunity to learn and practice new social skills and ways of relating to others
Overcoming feelings of isolation
Receiving feedback from others who experience similar challenges
Progress often occurs more rapidly in groups because they are time-limited and structured.

Self-management techniques including deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, and mindfulness techniques
