About the presenter:
Associate Professor Lexine Stapinski is an Associate Professor and Clinical Psychologist at the Matilda Centre. Her research focuses on understanding the inter-relationship between anxiety and substance use disorders, and how we can optimise prevention, early intervention and treatment approaches for these commonly co-occurring conditions.

This webinar will lead to:

  • An understanding of typical patterns and issues relevant to the management of anxiety and alcohol use disorder comorbidity;
  • Introduction to an integrated cognitive behaviour therapy program that improves outcomes by concurrently addressing anxiety, alcohol use and the connections between them;
  • Awareness of the developmental links between anxiety and alcohol use, including strategies to prevent the development of alcohol use disorders among anxious young people.
