Free Tahoe seminars to focus on de-mystifying anxiety disorders

Staff report

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Dr. Barry C. Barmann, and his wife, Mary, will present an info-seminar entitled, “Anxiety: What Fuels Our Worry Engine?”

The presentation will be held from 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 8, and 1-2:30 p.m. Saturday, June 11 at the Center for Anxiety & Chronic Worry, at 937 Tahoe Blvd. (Pine Ridge Plaza), Ste. 210 in Incline Village.

According to the Barmanns, the free presentations will discuss issues related to the difference between “productive” and “nonproductive” worry; the factors that serve to maintain the worry process; why worry is often referred to as a “double-edged sword”; and what triggers the worry process.

“Anxiety is the No. 1 psychiatric diagnosis seen within the medical and mental health professions,” Dr. Barmann said. “Yet, most people remain unaware of the factors that serve to trigger and maintain this exhausting condition.”

The clinics are designed to help de-mystify the worry process, and to discuss methods for changing the relationship one has with their worry.

Seating is limited to 15 participants, who must RSVP no later than 24 hours prior to each date.

Call 775-831-2436 to reserve your seat. Cheese, snacks and beverages will be served.

Barry C. Barmann, Ph.D., Licensed Clinical Psychologist, and Mary B. Barmann, MFT, Licensed Marriage, Family Therapist, write the “Got Anxiety” column in the Sierra Sun and North Lake Tahoe Bonanza, and they maintain the outpatient Center for Anxiety & Chronic Worry clinic. Visit to learn more.
