About the conference
The one-day conference on Anxiety Disorders will be held on the 21st of November 2013 in Manchester. We are pleased to offer an exciting programme, which integrates cutting-edge contemporary psychological research as well as clinical practise.
Leading national experts in the field of anxiety disorders will review the current state of knowledge across a broad range of themes covering effective interventions, research and policy options.
Anxiety is one of the most frequently diagnosed psychological disorders with millions of people all over the world affected by it. The spectrum of anxiety disorders ranges from panic disorder and generalized anxiety disorders (GAD) to various types of phobic disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Anxiety Disorders present challenging problems in the clinician’s daily practice. Despite an increase of people being treated for anxiety disorders, mental health care providers are increasingly pressured to reduce the number of sessions and use demonstrably effective treatments. Left untreated anxiety disorders can turn chronic thus contributing further to the rising annual economic cost of mental illness.
This conference will focus on bringing healthcare professionals together to share their knowledge, experience and achievements in diagnosing and managing variety of anxiety disorders as well as to update you on the latest developments in research.
Each presentation will be followed by time for questions and answers to discuss emerging issues.
This conference is of great relevance to clinicians, therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, counsellors, social workers, researchers, physicians, general practitioners and nurses.
