Anx­i­ety project

Joondalup Weekender - - Opinion -

ECU re­searchers are look­ing for peo­ple with anx­i­ety or de­pres­sion symp­toms to take part in a project ex­am­in­ing emo­tion-fo­cused group ther­apy.

The ther­apy is based on re­search find­ings that have shown it is pos­si­ble to trans­form crit­i­cal voices and painful emo­tions by ac­cess­ing al­ter­nate em­pow­er­ing emo­tions.

The free 10-week pro­gram will be run by ECU Masters of Clin­i­cal Psy­chol­ogy lec­turer Ja­son Shar­ba­nee, who has fa­cil­i­tated train­ings in this style of ther­apy in­ter­na­tion­ally.

Par­tic­i­pants will be mon­i­tored for how they are pro­gress­ing; if al­ter­na­tive treat­ments are in­di­cated, ap­pro­pri­ate re­fer­ral op­tions will be of­fered.

To vol­un­teer or for more in­for­ma­tion, email j.shar­ba­nee@ecu.
