As restrictions to physical distancing begin to lift in the coming months, we are all facing an unprecedented situation: on the one hand, we will be “going back to normal,” but, on the other one, much has changed over the past few months, so we will actually living in a “new normal.” This juxtaposition of familiar and new can be the source of much anxiety and distress, but it can also represent an opportunity to redefine ourselves and grow. As therapists, we have a unique opportunity to help our clients not only cope with these changes, but also thrive in the face of this new life we’re about to start. In this webinar, I will discuss an emotion-focused CBT approach for helping clients manage surges in anxiety (e.g., worries about resuming in-person interactions, heightened fears of contamination, agoraphobic concerns, existential anxiety, hopelessness) and adopt a values-based approach to re-envision their lives (e.g., career, relationships, health). I will review a transdiagnostic approach, since clients might experience concerns that are not necessarily aligned with their current diagnosis (e.g., someone with social anxiety might become preoccupied with contamination). It will be highly interactive (so come prepared with questions!) and we’ll also tackle self-care as therapists.

 Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify key struggles that clients will experience while adjusting to a “new normal”
  2. Recognize subthreshold and emerging presentations of new disorders triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic 
  3. Develop transdiagnostic case conceptualizations
  4. Teach emotion regulation strategies to help clients reframe automatic thoughts and change their relationship to anxiety
  5. Adopt a behavioral activation approach to help clients better structure their days and lift their moods
  6. Utilize a values-based approach to help clients make the most out of this crisis
