Virtual Trainings For Professionals

Registration is now open for my LIVE full day virtual training June 4, 2021 (6 CEs included)


If you’re in clinical practice, having a clear and active approach with anxious families is essential. Many of you are familiar with my approach and this 6 hour training is designed to further hone your skills.  We’ll focus on identifying the important targets for treatment, creating homework assignments for families, working directly with parents, and, above all, ACTIVELY engaging families as quickly as possible. We’ll dig deep into the process and skill-based approach that helps sidestep the common traps: getting stuck in the content, the use of reassurance and avoidance, and an emphasis on elimination strategies.

This workshop is intended for licensed mental health professionals in clinical practice.



Teens, Anxiety, and Depression:

Active Strategies to Move Teens Forward

A Six Hour Online Training

Both anxiety and depression are on the rise in teens, and anxiety is currently the top reason why a parent brings a child to a mental health professional. Because an untreated anxiety disorder is one of the top predictors of developing depression as an adolescent or young adult, the need for prevention and more effective treatment of anxiety has become a critical focus of those that work with children and teens in many settings.

This is an intermediate to advanced level training appropriate for all who work (and live) with teens: licensed mental health counselors, psychologists, social workers, school counselors, school nurses, educators, parents, caregivers, foster parents, and grandparents.

Decreasing Anxiety: How to Talk to Your Anxious Child

This 45-minute video “consultation” provides the language parents need to both help your anxious child and interrupt your worried parenting habits. I highlight the common mistakes that feel “right” and loving and act as a short term fix, but actually make the problem of anxiety worse over time.  In keeping with my concrete and accessible approach, I use drawings, metaphors and memorable words to immediately help you find your way out of the worry trap.

Playing with Anxiety:
Casey’s Guide for Teens and Kids

Anxiety has the power to stop kids in their tracks, preventing them from exploring and growing into independent teens and young adults.

Casey, the fourteen year old narrator of Playing with Anxiety, knows all too well how worry can interrupt fun, ruin school, and take control of a family.

In this companion book to Reid Wilson and Lynn Lyons’ parenting book, Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents: 7 Ways to Stop the Worry Cycle and Raise Courageous & Independent Children (HCI Books, 2013), Casey shares her own experiences and those of her friends to teach kids and teens the strategies to handle the normal worries of growing as well as the more powerful tricks of anxiety.

With pluck and humor, Casey tells stories, offers exercises, and describes her “solving the puzzle” approach that kids and their parents can use to address all types of worries and fears.

Using Hypnosis with Children:
Creating and Delivering Effective Interventions

From the initial interview to creating the best metaphors, Using Hypnosis with Children is a practical, step-by-step guide that shows health care providers (including therapists, nurses, pediatricians, dentists, and educators) how to create and deliver hypnotic interventions that are customized and effective into their pediatric clinical work, with utilization and flexibility as key components to an overall treatment approach.

Using case examples of language for all age groups, readers learn first how to identify the salient targets or themes, deliver a session that hits these targets with precision, and then connect the session to the child’s everyday experience.

More broadly, readers learn to use hypnosis as a way to help create new neural pathways, teach self-regulation, introduce a more internal locus of control, and develop positive interpersonal experiences.

Chapters focus on the most common issues that children face, including anxiety, depression, medical procedures/pain, and sleep.
