Open Forest Self Help Module

Dealing with Anxiety

The purpose of this program, which uses the principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy in nine guided sessions, is to provide a brief self-help therapy program for treating anxiety problems.

Do I have anxiety symptoms?

Susan’s chest tightens, her throat dries, and her hands start to shake when she even thinks about talking in front of a group of people. As a result, she often stays quiet during important work meetings, even when she has good ideas. Joe worries about many things. He feels anxious almost every day and has trouble relaxing. His wife complains that he easily gets irritated and aggressive, which is not helping their relationship at all. Jolene is constantly afraid that something awful might happen. She tries to avoid situations where something unexpected might happen, including driving, flying, and unfamiliar places.

Susan, Joe, and Jolene try their best to avoid distress, but they just cannot seem to cope as well as they should in everyday life. If you recognized any of these cases, or you can relate to any of their fears and struggles, perhaps you suffer from symptoms of anxiety too. If that is true, it is likely that this anxiety course will help you reduce the symptoms such as paralyzing worries and fears or support you to help a loved one in trouble.

Who should attend this self-help module?

  1. adults with depression to acquire the knowledge and skills to deal better with their symptoms.
  2. partners and parents to support those diagnosed with depression will benefit from this module as well.

The purpose of this program is to provide a brief self-help therapy program for treating anxiety problems, which works best for those who have mild to moderate anxiety problems and is not intended to be used by those with severe anxiety problems or disorders.

How is this program designed?

This program is intended to optimize the online therapy of depression by adhering to the established and systematic method of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This structure aims to improve well-being and daily function to encourage completion and positive long-term results.

In addition to the introduction, there are eight sessions in total. Each session centers on a practical exercise with an explanation of the relevant principles and goals that it is based upon. It is entirely self-paced, and can take as much, or as little time and repetition as required to extract the most benefit. In the first session, problems that you believe interfere with achieving your long-term goals will be identified. These will be explored and analyzed further in following sessions to devise an improvement action plan.

“I feel better already”

How do I enroll?

Access to our self-help modules is subscription based. You can choose between 1, 3 and 6-month subscriptions. Most people choose a three-month subscription, as the depression module takes about eight weeks to complete. This option gives you some time to space out the modules – something we encourage, as the more time you take to practice in “real life” the skills you acquire in these modules, the better!
