Living alongside anxiety disorders

There are a wide range of anxiety symptoms and people can exhibit a range of different behaviours at different times, which can make it hard to understand. This two-part workshop offers an opportunity to explore anxiety disorders openly and safely, in a small group. We will look at ways we can help and care for someone, and importantly, take time to explore and ways we can take care of ourselves.

In this live, real-time Zoom session we will:

Part 1 – Understanding anxiety disorders: 

  • Give you an overview of different anxiety disorders, including Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Discuss the link between trauma and anxiety disorders
  • Look at experiences and perspectives of a person with an anxiety disorder

Part 2 – Responding to anxiety disorders: 

  •  Give you supportive ways of responding to and caring for a person who has an anxiety disorder
  • Discuss how to help when someone doesn’t want to be helped
  • Chat about looking after ourselves as carers (self-care tips and techniques)
  • Identify further help, support and resources
