Reid Wilson – Mastering the Anxiety Game in Clinical Practice, Rapid Change for the Anxious Mind

Join internationally recognized anxiety disorders treatment expert and author, Reid Wilson, PhD, for this cutting-edge seminar and start helping your clients stop the noise and change the way they relate to their anxieties.
