Are you treating your anxiety, or just getting through it?
Let’s talk about it.
Anxiety is a tough beast, and tons of people struggle with it every day. For some reason, people seem to think they can fight this beast with NO tools, NO armor, and NO leaders. Would you go into battle wearing nothing but your bathing suit? No way! Fighting anxiety is a battle, and if you go in unprepared, you won’t win.
Each Anxiety Is an Asshole Live Workshop is a 90-minute seminar designed to jump-start your anxiety warrior training. It’s not therapy, it’s not advice, it’s not a club – it’s an education program where you’ll get systematic, science-based instruction and support as you get stronger, smarter, and faster at battling anxiety. Join me every other Wednesday as we explore what it means to be an anxiety warrior.
Our next live workshop will be on April 15, from 7:00-8:30, and you’ll have access to the livestream video for a week afterwards.
When you register for the live workshop, you’ll have the option of attending in person, or watching the livestream online through a high-quality, easy-to-use professional webinar program. No matter where in the world you are watching from, you’ll be able to submit questions and answer audience surveys right alongside those who are there in person. The webinar stays posted for a week after the session, so if your plans change last-minute, you can still watch the workshop on your own.
Each workshop is led by me, with occasional guest contributors, hands-on activities, and audience surveys to guide the conversation. We’ll take a lighthearted, humorous approach to exploring anxiety, but you can be assured that you’ll learn reliable, science-based information that will give you new skills and tools you can use right away.
I’m ready to invest in you.
Are you ready to invest in yourself?
Frequently asked questions
Q: Where are the workshops held?
A: If you’d like to attend in person, our workshops are currently being hosted by fabulous local businesses in Denton, Texas. The location will be sent to registrants prior to the event. (Not until after the pandemic, though!)
If you’re not local to Denton, you can login and participate fully in the seminar from anywhere in the world. We use a professional webinar platform, which allows you to submit questions and comments while the seminar is happening. We have professional video and audio engineers who will ensure you have the highest quality experience.
Q: My anxiety feels different than the way I hear other people describe theirs. How do I know I this is for me?
A: I can guarantee that your anxiety will be different from other workshop attendees – and that’s okay! We’ll talk about all the different ways anxiety can manifest, and we’ll work on strategies you can adapt for your own personal needs. You’ll find lots of common ground with your fellow warriors no matter what, and hopefully you’ll learn new and interesting things about yourself as we go along!
Q: What do I need to have with me for the workshop?
A: At the very least, you’ll want a pen and paper, or some other way to take notes. A day or two before the workshop, I’ll send an email with a list of things you might need, but these will be optional, and will typically be things you can find around the house or at the dollar store.
Q: Is this an all-ages event?
A: Although there is no age limit, the workshop is not intended for young children, and will likely contain some PG-13 language.
Q: Do I have to talk to other people? Will I be called on during the workshop?
A: This is a very common concern, so don’t worry! We do our best to create an anxiety-friendly space! I will never call on you or ask you to speak in front of the group (although you can volunteer). There are no activities that require you to engage with others unless you want to. Audience surveys and questions are conducted anonymously.
