Although we live in greater safety and security than ever before, Americans are the most nervous people on planet earth! According to the National Institute of Mental Health, almost 20% of U.S. adults suffer from clinical anxiety. For the anxiety sufferer, the automatic fear-response that exists to protect one from harm becomes the very source of nervous suffering.

As a family and business strategist, Dr. Daniel Lerner has effectively integrated his background in clinical psychology with experience in the corporate world to successfully coach numerous individuals who find themselves hijacked by worry and fear. This full day workshop will employ case vignettes, role-plays, and well-placed humor as a means of understanding how anxiety works and imparting the most effective treatments and self-help interventions for anxiety, panic, and phobias.
