This workshop will use a case formulation-based approach to cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for anxiety-related disorders including panic disorder, social anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder. We will review mechanisms that contribute to the maintenance of anxiety, including avoidance, maladaptive beliefs, physiological arousal, and skill deficits. We will then discuss evidence-based practices for disrupting those maintaining mechanisms, including exposure, belief challenging, relaxation training, and skill training. Video vignettes and didactic instruction will be used to illustrate how these principles are applied to specific disorders.
