Dear Colleagues

I am honored to invite you to participate in two workshops on the treatment of anxiety disorders.

The first workshop on November 3rd will address the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and will focus primarily on OCD characterized by multiple obsessions. As is known, routine CBT for OCD is not particularly successful among patients with resistant obsessions who often lack overt rituals. Cognitive theories on obsessions target meta-cognitions of the personal meaning of the unwanted obsessions. The workshop will teach how to treat these common cases and how to change these personal appraisals in order to alleviate the patient's suffering.

The second workshop on November 4th will address treatment of anxiety disorders with transdiagnostic-unified treatments. The interest in these treatments emerged both as a result of the high comorbidity among these disorders and also from practical considerations of the advantage of implementing such treatments. The workshop will address the elements that characterize these protocols and will emphasize adjunct therapeutic factors such as motivation and readiness to change and familial support systems.

Both workshops will be accompanied by detailed handouts.

The workshops will be given by Dr. Sheila Woody. Dr. Woody has conducted research over the past twenty years on evidence-based treatments in psychology, mainly for anxiety disorders. She is an Associate Professor of Psychology and the Director of Clinical Training at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. She is a talented speaker and lectures widely around the world. Dr. Woody published many scientific articles and has received many distinguished awards for her contribution to science.

The Israeli Organization for the Advancement of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (ITA) is honored to invite Dr. Woody and appreciates Dr. Woody's willingness to share with us her vast knowledge and experience. We expect the workshops to be highly instructive and enriching.

I look forward to your participation and am certain you will find it worthwhile.

With warm wishes for the New Year,
Dr. Sofi Marom
