Welcome back to another episode of Your Anxiety Toolkit. You are going to LOVE this week's podcast interview with Dr. Reid Wilson. For those who don’t know Dr. Reid Wilson, he is a world-class specialist in the area of Anxiety Disorders. Dr. Reid Wilson is the Director of the Anxiety Disorders Treatment Center in Chapel Hill and Durham, NC, and is Adjunct Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine.
Dr. Reid Wilson is the author of the amazing book for Panic Disorder, called Don’t Panic, and the co-author of wonderful books such as Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents, Stop Obsessing! and Playing with Anxiety.
Dr. Reid Wilson is a Founding Clinical Fellow of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America and a Fellow of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies. So, I am sure you are wowed already, but wait for it! This episode will blow your mind even more.
In this week’s episode, I talk with Dr. Reid Wilson about a perspective change and an attitude change from one where we do not want anxiety to one where we WANT anxiety. I know this may seem strange, but believe me, this will change your whole game when it comes to the treatment of anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and other anxiety disorders.
In this episode, we address the following topics.

Before we go, I have a few exciting events to tell you about! I’ll be speaking at both the OCD SoCal Conference and OCDeconstruct.

OCDeconstruct is a free online conference designed to give those with OCD, and their loved ones, the information needed to understand key concepts related to the disorder so they can get a productive start on treatment.
