About the conference
This year our one-day conference on Anxiety Disorders will be held on the 21st of November 2013 in Manchester. We are pleased to offer an exciting programme, which integrates cutting-edge contemporary psychological research as well as clinical practise.
Leading national experts in the field of anxiety disorders will review the current state of knowledge across a broad range of themes covering effective interventions, research and policy options.
Anxiety is one of the most frequently diagnosed psychological disorders with millions of people all over the world affected by it. The spectrum of anxiety disorders ranges from panic disorder and generalized anxiety disorders (GAD) to various types of phobic disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Anxiety Disorders present challenging problems in the clinician's daily practice. Despite an increase of people being treated for anxiety disorders, mental health care providers are increasingly pressured to reduce the number of sessions and use demonstrably effective treatments. Left untreated anxiety disorders can turn chronic thus contributing further to the rising annual economic cost of mental illness.
This conference will focus on bringing healthcare professionals together to share their knowledge, experience and achievements in diagnosing and managing variety of anxiety disorders as well as to update you on the latest developments in research.
Each presentation will be followed by time for questions and answers to discuss emerging issues.
This conference is of great relevance to clinicians, therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, counsellors, social workers, researchers, physicians, general practitioners and nurses.

About The Midland Hotel
The Midland is one of Manchester's most famous landmarks and best loved hotels and has recently undergone a £15 million full refurbishment. There is no finer example of Edwardian architecture and it is considered to be one of the finest hotels in Europe. The Midland has welcomed many famous names through its doors and has been the backdrop for many a fascinating tale and significant meeting. This is the place where Hon Charles Stewart Rolls first met with Frederick Henry Royce in 1904 and formed the legendary Rolls Royce Ltd. The restaurants within the hotel present guests with a choice; the Octagon Terrace is the perfect place for light snacks and business meetings over coffee. For those just wishing to relax and enjoy, afternoon tea is a tradition that has carried through the years and is still as popular as ever. The Colony offers Bistro Style Cuisine, whilst those looking for that something special can visit the opulent surroundings of the French restaurant, one of the finest restaurants in Manchester and highly recommended by all who eat there. The popularity of The Midland can be accredited to its elegance, comfort and warm hospitality combined with outstanding facilities and meticulous service..
There are three eating establishments on site. The main restaurant is French and is the recipient of two AA Rosettes and serves traditional French cuisine with an English twist. The restaurant has maintained an elegant decor for which to dine in. The Colony restaurant was relaunched in November 2006 following a complete refurbishment. This stylish brasserie offers a delicious a la carte menu of modern European cuisine. Wyvern Bar is a matchless venue for cocktails, while the elegant Octagon Lounge serves drinks, deliciously creative light snacks, and the ultimate in afternoon tea..

All of the recently refurbished rooms are large in size and furnished to a high standard in a contemporary design. Rooms vary in style from floor to floor with some seductively furnished with dark wooden features and plum soft furnishings, whereas others are brighter in style with neutral and gold decor. Each of the rooms is equipped with air conditioning, personal tea and coffee making, mini-bar, Wi-Fi technology, in-house movies, and flat-screen TVs.
The reception area is large, with ceramic pillars, tiled floors and a large sky light, which lets in natural daylight. There is a large seating area near the bar where food is served throughout the day..
The hotel is a very old, traditional building that once belonged to the Midland railway company. It has always been well maintained to a high standard. The hotel has undergone major renovations and the building is in excellent condition..
The city boasts stunning historical buildings such as The Town Hall and the Cathedral. Yet mixes this with the contemporary regeneration of the commercial heart of the city and the nearby Salford Quays. The tram, train and bus network in Manchester make it easy for visitors to navigate around the city and see every attraction it holds including its two famous football clubs, Manchester United and Manchester City. A visit to Salford Quays is a must and the famous Lowry Museum is resplendent in silver and has something of the air of Bilbao's Guggenheim Museum. There are two auditoria, the Lowry galleries and bars and restaurants.
