Anxiety is a universal emotion that we all experience but, for 1 in 4 people, anxiety can be significantly debilitating.

Join Dr. Randi McCabe as she helps participants in this webinar learn about the nature of anxiety and its disorders and how to determine when the experience of anxiety warrants intervention.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based psychological treatment that is a first-line treatment for individuals with anxiety disorders. In this webinar, participants will learn about CBT and how it is used to target anxiety symptoms, as well as available resources, including self-help and therapist-assisted treatment.

Dr. Anthony Levinson will host and moderate this talk.
