Course Syllabus: Anxiety Therapy 101
with CEU Certificate*
Welcome to "Anxiety Therapy". In today's hyper-stimulated society, more people than ever are suffering from the inability to process stress, trauma- and even daily life with ease. This has led to a sharp increase in anxiety related conditions and has made it necessary for both the common person, as well as professionals to learn about beneficial coping strategies and therapies to minimize the impact.
When the average person thinks about the term "anxiety," often what may come to mind is a person who worries excessively, or who may have a nervous habit or tick. And while these can be manifestations of anxiety, this type of condition can include symptoms that far exceed general nervousness. If left untreated, some forms of anxiety can venture into the realm of being harmful, or can even lead to accidental death or suicide.
Life is fraught with frustrations, stress, and occasional disappointments. It is normal to feel bouts of anxiety at times. However, when the worry or fear becomes constant or immobilizing, it has turned from being a healthy form of caution and self-preservation, to a condition in need of attention. Similarly, a person may have an aversion to something -- such as a snake or specific type of food. However, if that aversion turns into an uncontrollable and irrational fear where they imagine snakes at every turn, or develop an eating disorder, treatment should be sought immediately.
What is Anxiety?
The human body is an amazing vessel that carries out thousands of operations every minute. Despite early thoughts that the mind is separate from the body, ongoing research shows an undeniable link between our mental, emotional, and physical states. And while stress is a normal part of life, a consistent inability to cope with everyday stressors, or experiencing persistent fear or worry, is a sign of a bigger problem.
