What is this workshop about?

When anxiety appears, our world changes: everything becomes frightening and unbearable. The more we try to get rid of it, the bigger it gets.

In this workshop we will explore all the ways anxiety manifests itself, reflecting on both its negative and positive role. We will investigate the reasons why anxiety persists and becomes problematic and we will explore the different ways in which anxiety manifests itself (cognitive, physical and behavioral). We will look at how anxiety can affect different areas of life, including work, and how it manifests itself in specific situations, such as panic attacks, performance anxiety, obsessions-compulsions and generalized anxiety. Finally, we will discuss practical ways to take care of anxiety, including self-hearing, emotional regulation strategies, self-care and connecting with others.
