SMART Recovery SPECIAL EVENT WEBINAR: Dr. Bill Knaus On Anxiety
SMART Recovery® is thrilled to announce that Dr. William J. Knaus, Ed.D. will be joining us online on August 15, 2015 at 5:00 PM EDT for a new SMART Special Event Webinar: On Anxiety.
Registration and information are available at www.smartrecovery.org/
Dr. Knaus is the foremost authority in the field of overcoming procrastination, but he is also renowned for his work in practical application of rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT)
Many of those recovering from substance abuse or other addictive disorders experience anxiety and panic. These “are intense emotions, and in the moments that you experience them it may seem like you are powerless, but nothing could be further from the truth.” Dr. Knaus will discuss practical ways to lessen anxiety and continue to build a strong, satisfying life. To paraphrase Joel Block, Ph.D., If getting a better handle on emotions, giving up perfectionism, and defeating social anxiety are your goals, you will hear Bill speaking directly to you. Dr. Knaus will also share a few insights on how to use procrastination technology to reduce anxiety and substance abuse simultaneously.
Bill Knaus originated the self-help movement in procrastination and has worked with thousands of people in his individual private practice and in his transformational workshops for people with procrastination. Over 1 million profited from reading his bestselling books on procrastination. An original director of post-graduate training in rational emotive behavioral therapy, Bill directly helped train over 1000 professionals, counselors and psychotherapists. He originated rational emotive education, an evidence-based positive mental health program for kids and teens.
He is known by many in SMART Recovery as the author of The SMART Recovery Primer, a manual that helped launch SMART. This former professor authored more than 20 books. His latest, End Procrastination Now (McGraw-Hill, 2010), is his fifth and most up-to-date book on how to overcome procrastination. The Procrastination Workbook (New Harbinger, 2002) came from his group work with people suffering from hardcore procrastination. Dr. Knaus is a regular contributor to Psychology Today.
Dr. Knaus is one of SMART’s favorite speakers, and we are delighted that he will be joining us this summer! SMART is grateful for the sponsorship of Lucida Treatment Center in Lantana, Florida to bring you this free webinar event. We welcome the general public as well as our own community of SMART participants, facilitators, volunteers and professional friends.
