"Reid Wilson is an inspiring teacher and a pioneer in the development of self help approaches for anxiety disorder. He is a highly skilled therapist with a wealth of experience. This example of brief treatment of a woman with obsessions and compulsions around fears of illness provides insightful approaches to this challenging problem. Both experienced and developing therapists will enjoy the opportunity to watch and hear about Dr. Wilson's therapeutic approach." 
-- John R. Walker, PhD, Director, Anxiety Disorders Clinic, University of Manitoba; Coauthor of Treating Health Anxiety

"This is a unique opportunity to look behind the scene at how one of the pioneers in the field of anxiety treatment actually goes about doing therapy. You will be able to understand the principles behind how he makes choices from moment to moment as he actively pushes his patients to relate to their inner experience with an entirely different attitude. Even if you learned CBT for anxiety disorders years ago and have been seeing obsessive patients all along, you will see why this particular innovation is a breakthrough."
-- Sally Winston, PsyD, Co-Director, Anxiety and Stress Disorders Clinic of Maryland

"There is nothing more satisfying than watching a master use his skills, and Dr. Wilson does that wonderfully in this video. While other therapists may become exasperated with their clients who appear unmotivated to change, Dr. Wilson brings that to the forefront of the session, challenging where he can, and also knowing where to pick his battles. Listening to Dr. Wilson give the reasons why he has made the choices he has made allows for the viewer to get an insight on how to manage a difficult client and still get results in just two sessions. This is a must watch video for anyone wanting to work with OCD patients."
-- Patrick B. McGrath, PhD, Director, Alexian Brothers Center for Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders
In Depth
With humor and compassion, Wilson masterfully engages a range of anxious clients suffering from panic, phobias, obsessions, and compulsions in his signature “paradoxical approach” to treating panic disorders, encouraging them to not only welcome, but invite their symptoms to increase when they feel them arise. Using various interventions, he shows his clients that it is their relationship to their symptoms, rather than the symptoms themselves, that makes them so intractable.

If you’re struggling using traditional approaches with clients who have panic or other anxiety disorders, let Wilson guide you in a radically different, counterintuitive and extremely effective approach, shown through this series in a host of lively ways.

By watching this series, you will:
  • Learn the core concepts of Wilson’s approach to treating anxiety disorders.
  • Understand how to conduct a highly focused assessment.
  • Identify tools for helping clients increase their tolerance of uncertainty and discomfort.
