414/514 Combined Anxiety and Depression

Margaret Wehrenberg • Saturday All Day

Margaret WehrenbergAnxiety and depression are the most common of presenting symptoms and present a special challenge when they co-occur in the same client, which they often do. Caught in a mix of anxiety and depression, different clients require different approaches, and this workshop identifies seven types of anxious/depressed clients and ways to approach each, including how to:

  • Motivate the Low-Energy client
  • Redirect the mental energy of the Hopeless Ruminator client
  • Calm the Panicky Depressive client
  • Introduce choice with the Worried Exhausted client
  • Break the routines of the Quiet Avoider client
  • Teach balance to the High-Energy Depressed client
  • Challenge the beliefs of the Highly Anxious client

Continued with workshop 514.
