Accelerated Treatment for Anxiety: Core Concepts

by Reid Wilson
Reid Wilson captivates in this dynamic presentation of his distinctive approach to treating anxiety disorders. You’ll reconsider your own strategies as you consider his paradoxical spin on the nature of anxiety and see his powerful methods in action.

Part of the 6-video series: Strategic Treatment of Anxiety Disorders


Accelerated Treatment for Anxiety: Core Concepts
In this compelling culmination to our series on the strategic treatment of anxiety disorders, master clinician Reid Wilson sums up the fundamentals to tackling the most common condition psychotherapists are confronted with. In this lively new video, the seasoned anxiety expert combines a live presentation with an accompanying case demonstration to illustrate the core concepts of his groundbreaking technique and paradoxical twist on exposure therapy.

With more than three decades of treating OCD, phobias, and panic disorder under his belt, Wilson distills his formidable clinical expertise into an accessible live overview that’s both conceptual and strategic. Noting that a stance of “collaborative curiosity” underpins any successful treatment, he begins work with Olivia, a woman suffering from a longstanding need to compulsively clean house and wash her hands to avoid “contamination.” With humor, clarity, and empathic analogies that leverage his client’s motivation for success, he encourages her to look beyond the content of her fears, externalize her anxiety, and welcome the chance to master her discomfort.

Emphasizing the practice of moving toward the experience of anxiety itself, Wilson shows you how he challenges clients to rise above their fears and not merely tolerate uncertainty, but invite and embrace it enthusiastically. Weaving together commentary and demonstration, he provides Olivia with psychoeducation and practical tools to “habituate” toward distress on a moment-by-moment basis, and offers her firm support as she gradually musters the courage to willingly smear her hands across a filthy kitchen sink.

Wilson’s passionate personality shines through in this video, and you’ll be prompted to rethink your own clinical approach after watching him in action. If you’re looking for a fresh understanding of anxiety disorders and effective ways to treat its most unyielding aspects, you’ll love this “advanced class” showcasing Wilson’s unique protocol.

With an initial case demonstration paired alongside live analysis, Reid Wilson marks the culmination of over thirty years of clinical work in this new video featuring the core concepts of his accelerated approach to anxiety disorders.

In addition to a hefty lecture on the essentials of Wilson’s approach, you’ll be introduced to Olivia, a woman who visits Wilson after all of her efforts at controlling her anxiety have failed. Contrary to the avoidant strategies she’s employed in the past, Wilson suggests a counterintuitive intervention: “going after the distress.”

Wilson’s compassionate but firm approach takes the view that “If clients don’t risk the feared consequence, they can’t get better.” Over the course of just one introductory session, Wilson helps Olivia’s “move toward” the anxiety that drives her compulsive behaviors, and fundamentally shifts her frame of reference so that she can more fully engage with her discomfort, and begin to win “the anxiety game.”

This enlightening video serves as a capstone for the Strategic Treatment of Anxiety Disorders series, bringing you key elements of Wilson’s protocol as it applies to panic, phobias, and OCD.

By watching this video, you will:
  • Understand the core concepts of Wilson’s strategic approach to treating anxiety disorders.
  • Identify tools for helping clients increase their tolerance of uncertainty and discomfort.
  • Learn ways to increase client rapport and gain consent to treatment.
