Workshop

Presented by Whitney Graff, PsyD

This workshop is based on the core principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, an innovative and effective treatment for anxiety. You will learn about how a concept called psychological flexibility can unlock freedom and vitality for those who suffer with anxiety. We will also explore how attempts to get rid of unpleasant emotional states often lead to greater overall suffering and practice new ways of relating to painful feelings so you can fully pursue life's most important endeavors.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn more about how anxiety works and why trying to control or eliminate it often fails
  • Identify common ineffective responses to anxiety, including your personal patterns
  • Explore concepts like avoidance and acceptance, what they mean and don't mean, and the role they play in anxiety management
  • Practice new responses to anxiety to help you create a fulfilling and meaningful life
