Dr. Danny Zamir of the Anxiety and Panic Disorder Clinic of Santa Barbara will provide an overview of what health anxiety is, how health anxiety is maintained, and how to break the cycle of catastrophizing and reassurance seeking. This webinar is for clinicians treating people with health anxiety as well as for people who have health anxiety and want to learn about how to overcome this debilitating and excruciating condition.
