Janene M. Donarski – 2-Day: Anxiety Certification Course
Neuroscience has provided us with a map of the brain that can help us work with anxious minds. Many clinicians are left wondering how to interpret the intricate map of neuroscience to help guide their client sessions.
In this new, comprehensive certification training program recording, you’ll see how neuroscience can inform why, how and what techniques can help your clients stop the symptoms of anxiety – even tough to treat panic attacks, worry, rumination, nausea, and pounding hearts.
You can now watch Janene DonarskiDr. LP, LMSW CCATP for a more comprehensive step-By-Step by step clinical training to learn how neuroplasticity can help you revolutionize anxiety treatment.
Beyond the neurobiological “whats and whys”, you’ll also learn the “hows” of actual treatment – so you’ll know exactly how to empower your clients with strategies to resist anxiety-Initiating cognitions
You’ll leave this program recording confident in your ability and be fully prepared to integrate brain-Strategies that are based on the power of mindfulness to calm and soothe your mind.
- Clients with anxious symptoms should be able to identify the neurologic processes behind them.
- Assist clients with understanding the neurochemical processes behind anxiety. Client motivation is increased.
- Engage clients in treatment by setting goals that are personal and listening to the therapeutic relationship.
- Integrate client-specific goals to increase client engagement. Client efforts should be focused on lasting brain improvements.
- Compare the amygdala.-Cortex and based-Recognize the symptoms of anxiety based on their causes and determine how they can inform treatment.
- Communication strategies to calm anxiety and train the amygdala.
- You can teach your clients techniques to help them retrain their cortex, so that anxiety is overcome rather than exacerbated.
- Determine if the client is suffering from rebound anxiety or relapse symptoms to determine the best treatment options.
- Analyze the effects of psychotropic medication on neuroplasticity in brain and identify possible treatment options.
- Consider exposure an opportunity to teach your amygdala new ways to engage clients and improve their compliance.
- You can present client education exercises that you can use in session to teach clients how to use mindfulness techniques.
- Offer clinical strategies to manage comorbid depression. These strategies reduce worry, rumination and common cognitive errors, while encouraging positive thinking and social interaction.

Neuroscience and the Treatment of Cancer Anxiety
- Treatments and causes of cancer are now known
- Could explain neurological symptoms
- Science provides evidence, authority
- De-stigmatizes disorders
- Clinician concerns:
- You don’t have to be a neuroscientist
- Simplicity is not a good idea
- It is crucial to find the right level of explanation
Enhance Engagement in Treatment
- Don’t neglect the therapeutic relationship
- Personal goals are the most important
- Be prepared to address the needs of anxious clients
- Strategies are not easy to implement.
- Guide the process using client’s goals
- Stay motivated
- Defined in everyday English
- Therapy based on neurological information
- ”Change the brain” in desired ways
- Increase anxiety resistance
- Make a new you
- Re-Consolidation: The modification or consolidation of emotional memories
CBT that is neuropsychologically informed
- Effective strategies can be employed “rewire” The brain
- Evidence supporting efficacy has been long-standing
- Skills-Based approach
- Focus on the Present
- Psychoeducation is crucial
Identify the Two Neural Pathways Anxiety
- Amygdala bottom-Up triggering emotion, physicality and anxiety
- Cortex – top-Down emotion generation based on cognition
- How to explain the paths to clients
- How anxiety is created in each pathway
- These pathways interact with each other
Client Friendly Explanations
- To create concrete understanding, use illustrations
- Fight/flight/freeze reactions
- The “language of the amygdala”
- Anxiety The cortex
- The two paths can be identified by clients
All are welcome to learn more about neuroplasticity in the Amygdala Anxiety Disorders, OCD and Depression
- Sleep and the amygdala
- Exercise has a powerful influence
- Breathing techniques to lower activation
- Yoga, meditation, and relaxation can all be used to alter your reactions
- Exposure is an opportunity for amygdala learn
- Signs that the amygdala may be able to learn new responses
- For the amygdala to be changed, you must overcome anxiety
Neuroplasticity is essential for GAD/SAD/OCD, PTSD, and Depression
- ”Survival of the busiest” principle
- Specific circuitry can be strengthened or weakened
- The healthy (adaptive use) of worry in cortex
- ”You can’t erase: You must replace”
- Recognize uncertainty and adjust accordingly
- Correct use of distraction training
- Techniques for the left hemisphere
- Cognitive defusion
- Coping with thoughts
- Techniques for the right hemisphere
- Mindfulness and anxiety resistance
Neuroplasticity and Medications Anxiety Disorders, OCD/PTSD, Depression
- Medication’s effects in the rewiring process
- The chemical imbalance myth
- There is a danger in sedating the brain using benzodiazepines
- Promote neuroplasticity using SSRIs and SNRIs
- Effectiveness of CBT and meds
To focus on instead of diagnosing categories, we must move beyond diagnostic categories Anxiety Pathways
- Anxiety is a component in many diagnoses
- Depression, substance abuse, etc.
- Amygdala, cortex-Other disorders may also benefit from these techniques.
- Brain Target-Based on symptoms, rather than disorders
- Similar cortex can be used to respond to rumination, worry, obsessiveness and obsessions.-Techniques based
- Amygdala can respond to panicked, phobic, and compulsions.-Techniques based
