The Anxiety Clinic offers psychological treatments (talk therapies) and in-depth assessment of psychological functioning for children, adolescents, and adults with a wide variety of anxiety and related disorders, including panic disorder and panic attacks, social anxiety and social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
The Anxiety Clinic also offers a group that uses cognitive-behavioral therapy to target social anxiety, panic attacks, worry, obsessions and compulsions, phobias, post-traumatic stress, and other anxiety-related concerns. Members learn about anxiety and specific coping skills. Members then practice these skills in gradual exposure exercises and learn to apply their skills to future situations and other areas of concern.
The Anxiety Clinic at VCU's Center for Psychological Services and Development is co-directed by Dr. Scott Vrana and Dr. Michael Southam-Gerow, two faculty members in the Department of Psychology at VCU.
