Brief Summary:  A video case example will be presented.  Four experienced Santa Barbara-based Psychologists, featuring 4 different theoretical treatment perspectives (Psychoanalytic, Gestalt, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Mindfulness) will each present their case conceptualizations and practical approaches to treatment for the case.  A panel discussion will follow.


More Detailed Summary:  According to the National Institute of Mental Health, approximately 18% of adults experience an anxiety disorder in a given year, and anxiety is a component of many other mental disorders.  This workshop will closely examine the treatment of anxiety from four differing but at times overlapping theoretical perspectives:  cognitive-behavioral, gestalt, psychodynamic and mindfulness-based psychotherapy.  Each of the presenters will discuss how they have come to view anxiety, therapeutic outcomes and the methods they employ with their clients.  The workshop will also include a mutual "case presentation" based on a videotaped interview with Scott Stossel, author of the Atlantic Monthly article, "Surviving Anxiety" and the recently published, My Age of Anxiety: Fear, Hope, Dread and the Search for Peace of Mind. The workshop will conclude with a panel discussion from each of the presenters on the similarities and dissimilarities of their respective theoretical perspectives and associated mechanisms of change.



Goals and Objectives

1. Compare and contrast four different conceptualizations of anxiety: cognitive-behavioral, gestalt, psychodynamic and mindfulness-based psychotherapy.
2. Describe psychotherapeutic interventions for anxiety from each of the above perspectives.
3. Describe research supporting the efficacy of treatment from each of the above perspectives.
4. Understand the fears, anxieties and phobias of a mutual "case presentation" and identify treatment techniques and mechanisms of change.
