    Ten Best Strategies to Treat Worry and Generalized Anxiety Disorder

    How to Best Manage the Emotional Rollercoaster of Asperger Syndrome-High Functioning Autism

    Many professionals are frequently frustrated when presented with a client who has social deficits associated with Asperger Syndrome/High Functioning Autism. These individuals often manifest a variety of deficits that are typically beyond the scope of many well-intentioned therapists. Techniques that have been successfully used for years with clients who struggle with similar issues but do not have the Asperger Syndrome/High Functioning Autism are often ineffective when dealing with this population and leave both the client and professional frustrated. Frequently these clients develop significant stress due to faulty social-pragmatic communication.

    Evidence Based Worry Management without Medication

    More than 25% of people report that they worry too much. It has recently become clear that excessive worry leads not only to anxiety, but causes or contributes significantly to depression, medical conditions (e.g. IBS, cardiovascular disease, skin disorders) and more distressing anxiety disorders (e.g. panic disorder, OCD). Medication is usually ineffective or only partially effective and side-effects can even exacerbate anxiety, not to mention the risk of dependency. Furthermore, many patients would rather avoid medication and some refuse. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is very effective in treating GAD. For example, in a study in which Dr. Abel was a protocol therapist, over 91% of participants no longer met criteria for GAD (83% at two year follow-up). The purpose of this webinar is two-fold. One is to educate you on the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy in the treatment of GAD so that you consider referring to a CBT therapist.
