From a subtle feeling that is just below the surface to outright panic, overcoming anxiety is a challenge that many of us face. Find out how Resilience Training can help you create a life that is anxiety free.
Who is Affected by Anxiety?
Anxiety disorders affect 18% of American adults, and 25% of children between 13 and 18 years old.
This makes anxiety the most common emotional illness in America. Yet, only one-third of people who have anxiety disorders are receiving treatment. There is also a gender gap, with women suffering from anxiety attacks almost twice as much as men.
Anxiety disorders develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events. It's not uncommon for someone with an anxiety disorder to also suffer from depression.
Suffering with anxiety can leave many of us feeling like victims, living in fear of the next anxiety attack. But anxiety is not a sign of weakness, and dealing with it doesn’t mean you’re crazy. Luckily, there is help available.
How Our Workshop Can Help
Do you know someone who seems to manage stressful events with ease and live their life without fear?
You may assume they were born with greater emotional strength and that’s something you’ll never have. But it’s more likely they have coping tactics that allow them to be more resilient to challenging events and circumstances.
Resilience training can help you increase your abilities to adapt to and recover from life’s challenges or adversity - and change the internal messages we send ourselves that cause anxiety and panic attacks.
In the Don’t Panic! workshop, you will Learn To:
Identify ways to change your response to pressure and stress
Develop your natural strengths
Identify the opportunities that can come from setbacks and challenges
Develop problem-solving methods
Practice stress management and relaxation techniques
See the relationship between resilience, personal well-being, performance, and work pressure
If you’ve felt overwhelmed by challenges or have a tendency to dwell on problems, resilience training can help you gain new, healthy ways to cope with adversity and have a more positive outlook - making anxiety a thing of the past.
