6:15PM - 8:00PM (Pacific Time)
We all encounter clients with anxiety, depression, trauma, and OCD. This presentation will give you an overview of what is going on in the brains of people with anxiety, depression, and stress. You will learn strategies to work with people with various mental health conditions so that your existing methods work even better.
