Don’t Panic: Learning to Manage Anxious Moments and Anxiety Attacks

Presented by Mel Bennett, M.A., Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist

 Thursday, June 13th from 11:00 – 12:15pm

We all feel stress from time to time. Our thoughts can get away from us and we can’t seem to calm down. For some, these moments cause physical symptoms like chest pain, breathing difficulties, even fainting. This can happen out of the blue and produce escalating worry.

This workshop will explore just what is going on in such instances, why our mind and body can do this and how we can manage such anxious times.

Mel Bennett is a cognitive-behavioral therapist and specializes in the treatment of anxiety spectrum disorders.
