Course Contents

This course consists of two sections:

Section 1: introduction to anxiety

Anxiety can be defined as a feeling of fear and unease due to perceived danger, but when these feelings are misplaced or out of control can contribute to diagnosable Anxiety disorders that may include a range of other symptoms, and which often affect sufferers differently. This section introduces disordered Anxiety and the core concepts of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which is a common early treatment method.

Section 2: ideas and techniques

The second section of this course goes into more detail about techniques and treatments to alleviate symptoms of Anxiety, some of which are based in psychology, while others use mindfulness and meditation.

About the Course


The Managing Anxiety Training course is designed to raise awareness of how Anxiety disorders differ from feelings of anxiety about specific present dangers. It explains that, despite at least a quarter of the population suffering from some form of mood disorder, Anxiety disorders can manifest differently in different people, and therefore have very different symptoms.

The latter part of this course offers practical techniques for managing Anxiety symptoms and episodes. It introduces the practice of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which is a way of managing thoughts and feelings by changing routine behaviours, and techniques that can be used to reduce stress and Anxiety in the workplace.

Available in 31 languages, the course takes around 25 minutes to complete.
