Workshop Description: Many patients with anxiety disorders struggle with fears of bodily sensations. While this fear is most obvious in the context of panic disorder, patients with social anxiety, PTSD, and OCD often report elevated concerns about physiological manifestations of anxiety. For instance, it is common for patients to worry about sweating, breathing, choking, or their heart rate. In this webinar, Dr. Lily Brown will discuss the importance of interoceptive exposures for patients with fears of bodily sensations. We will introduce strategies to standardize the practice of interoceptive exposures for patients with anxiety. In addition, we will discuss strategies for using cognitive restructuring and acceptance to optimize the impact of interoceptive exposures. Attendees will leave this webinar with tips and tricks to ease the implementation of interoceptive exposures in their clinical practice.
