Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional 2-Day Training

Anxiety and obsessive-compulsive & related disorders are among the most prevalent of all classes of psychiatric conditions among adults and children in the United States. Due to a limited availability of providers who are adequately trained to administer evidenced-based treatments for this population, many patients continue to suffer and do not receive access to high-quality services. As such, the need for qualified treatment providers is critical given the prevalence of these disorders and lack of qualified clinicians.

This course is designed to provide attendees with an in-depth comprehensive training regarding the nature of the anxiety and obsessive-compulsive & related disorders and instruction on administrating evidenced-based cognitive-behavioral interventions. This is an intensive training course in cognitive-behavioral therapy including exposure and response prevention therapy (ERP) that will take place over the course of two days in order to meet certification standards (see below).
