When children and teens are in the grips of worry and anxiety, adults often feel stuck as well. Educators, therapists and parents routinely tell me how overwhelmed they feel by the frequency and intensity of anxiety in the children they care about. And they want to know what to do.

What you will learn to manage anxiety in children and families:

  • How do we get anxious students into school?
  • What do we do when an anxious child is falling apart in school?
  • What can adults do to both prevent anxiety from becoming so powerful and help children manage it when it does show up?
  • Why are the strategies frequently taught to kids–like breathing, relaxation, and other common CBT techniques—not working?
  • How does “frontloading” with anxious kids make interventions more effective?
  • How can we create more effective accommodations and 504 plans?
  • What is the connection between anxiety and depression?
  • What do parents, schools, and health professionals need to know about recognizing and treating OCD?
