Flagging Anxiety

with Dr. Harry Barry

 

How to help clients reshape their anxious brain

Course Details

Anxiety disorder is one of the most common mental health disorders; it is estimated that one in nine Irish people will experience a primary anxiety disorder during their lifetime. Dr. Barry is a GP based in Co. Louth with over 37 years of experience. He is renowned for his interest and work in mental health and is trained as a cognitive behavioural therapist. He is also the author of the best-selling "Flagging Series" on anxiety, depression, therapy and stress. Barry saw a need to improve our understanding of the neuroscience of illnesses such as anxiety. He is now part of an international group of researchers and thought leaders, looking to create new diagnostic tools in mental health.

 

In this CPD workshop, he will discuss the neuroscience of anxiety and how understanding this can empower clients. One of the reasons his lectures work so well is his extensive use of actual cases. Throughout the experiential workshop, you can see yourself sitting in front of the client, both looking in and participating in the interaction. You will see how therapist and client should work together to solve the specific anxiety in each case.

 

Dr. Barry demonstrates how the cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness techniques can literally alter our brains using the same neuroplasticity, in reverse, to block lifelong anxiety and panic.

 

If you are working with clients with any form of clinical anxiety, then this workshop is a must.

What our Students Say

“It achieved a great balance between knowledge of the topic and making this interesting and close to us... Eoin managed to make {the lecture} understandable to us with day to day examples. At the same time we felt that he was really an expert in the topic. From a HR perspective we were delighted to get so many people participating in the Q&A after the talk, as this is not the usual way our staff behaves.”
