A proven protocol of practical hands-on tools and techniques in a strategic framework.
ARP provides therapists, coaches, doctors and front-line access workers with a proven toolkit to help patients/clients end their panic attacks and self-manage their anxiety and stress levels. This program does not aim to examine diagnostic criteria or pharmacological treatment, (although resource material will be provided) but rather provides basic training in ARP giving you a proven set of practical hands-on tools and strategies by using interactive lectures, dyads, group work and case studies.
