It should be High Intensity Therapists that treat Health Anxiety as per the stepped care model. PWP's can complete an assessment with a patient who is experiencing health anxiety but they should be stepped up and not treated at step 2.myotai wrote:Hi,
Quick question, do PWP's as a rule treat Health Anxiety?
Hope this helps!
That's so interesting Sam! Do you have additional training for treating health anxiety? We cannot treat it at step 2 in my service!Sam1987 wrote:Our service will treat health anxiety at Step 2... Luckily we don't get that many of them! :/
I wonder why my service doesn't.. possibly due to funding and commissioning.Victoriomantic wrote:Yup, we treat health anxiety at Step 2 in my service also, both in guided and online through SilverCloud.
Did you have additional training at university for this?
So interesting! We do pretty much the same except health anxiety and binge eating! That sounds incredibly interesting though - I may raise this in my service. Thanks for the reply xVictoriomantic wrote:In my service at Step 2 we do depression, GAD, panic, phobia, stress, health anxiety, OCD (v v simple/mild presentation), binge eating (ditto), and living with LTC.
Anger management at Step 2?! That's amazing. Do you know whether there's much online about anger management GSH?Victoriomantic wrote:No problem I'm currently working on an anger management GSH protocol which I'm ready to pilot too ^^ Good luck x
