  • How it shows itself? (What does anxiety looks, feel, sound, smell and taste like)
  • What are the types of anxiety  disorders and what do they involve? (Knowledge about each disorder is extremely helpful to understanding how to help someone including yourself.)
  • What types of treatment are available, who can provide them and what do they involve?
  • It also provides practical strategies for facing anxiety, coping with it, dealing with it, living with it and most importantly, recovering from it.  Presented by a trainer with extensive 'lived experience' of anxiety disorders.
