Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for health anxiety
Health anxiety is the fear that one is ill, or will become ill, despite being in good health. Often, uncertainty surrounding the future or certain physical symptoms can increase this anxiety. During a pandemic, health anxiety can become more prevalent.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a gold standard treatment for many anxiety disorders including health anxiety. This webinar will explore the CBT conceptualization of health anxiety and how to develop cognitive strategies to challenge anxious thinking and beliefs. Participants will learn to develop behavioural strategies, such as exposure and response prevention exercises, to manage health anxiety.
