Approach to Anxiety Disorders in Primary Care

Thursday, November 23
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

In this workshop, we will present an overview of some of the DSM-V diagnoses for anxiety. This will include Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and related disorders, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Social Phobia. We will discuss how to use specific screening questions to facilitate making the different diagnoses in a time-efficient manner. Psychotherapy techniques that are applicable in the primary care sector will be presented.
We will then go on to present principles for the psychopharmacological treatment of these disorders in primary care. The pharmacologic data for this session will be based on recent evidence based guidelines.
