    This course will review the phenomenology and DSM-5 diagnoses of Health Anxiety. The CBT approach and evidence will be discussed. Attendees will work with a step by step protocol with suitable modifications to address health conditions.

    Health or illness anxiety is often a challenge for therapists and family physicians. They have a significant co-morbidity with mental health disorders and medical conditions. Not managing these conditions can lead to disability and increased cost of healthcare due to frequent presentations, investigations and treatments. Avoiding unwarranted treatments is crucial to improving the clients’ wellbeing.

    Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a well-established treatment for health anxiety, but a generic CBT approach may not yield success. Treatment of these conditions requires knowledge of CBT specific to these disorders.
