Anxiety and worry have a language all its own:  what if, catastrophic endings, made up stories that have no factual information. No matter how much our "logical brain" sees what our "emotional brain" is doing, it doesn't seem to know how to change the language or stop those pictures of catastrophe in our minds.

This workshop will address why we simple can't just stop worrying!    It will also give participants, worriers and non-worriers alike, an understanding of where worry and anxiety come from. It will give techniques that your "logical" mind can use to command your worry and anxiety, which will finally help you to stop the suffering.

By attending this workshop, family and friends who do not have anxiety or worry, will finally begin to understand how much those with anxiety and worry suffer.  They will learn the same techniques, so they can stop saying, "don't worry", and support you in ways that will actually help you.

While the majority of the workshop will focus on the dynamics of worry, some of the time will be devoted to supporting parents whose children are worriers and anxious as well.

Participants will:

  1. Learn where worry comes from.
  2. Understand the difference between the emotional brain and the logical brain.
  3. Learn how to command worry and stop suffering.
  4. Be better able to identify if a child is a worrier and apply those same skills to the child.
