V208/V308 Building Skills Between Sessions

A Fresh Strategy for Today’s Anxious Clients

Anxiety is self-reinforcing within each client and within the family environment. That’s why our anxious families need help between sessions practicing skills such as flexibility, tolerating uncertainty, and shifting reactions to physical symptoms—it’s vital to success. And while new apps promise round-the-clock mental health support, they’re not customized for individuals’ needs. This workshop will teach you to create and record targeted, customized skill-building “mini-sessions” for clients to use between sessions. You’ll discover how to: 

  • Identify the patterns of anxiety that need interrupting and shifting  
  • Develop strategies that support action over avoidance in anxious clients  
  • Create recorded mini-sessions with your clients that guide, remind, and support them as they interrupt patterns and practice new skills  
  • Learn tools and strategies that go beyond the goal of “calmness” and support action
