Cognitive Behavioral Treatment of Pediatric Anxiety 

Brief Description: Anxiety can often present itself very differently in children and adolescents relative to adult struggles with anxiety. Understanding these differences as well as how anxiety in youngsters may manifest itself as other difficulties (school avoidance, hostility and anger, crying, etc.) is a necessary prerequisite for effective treatment. This presentation will review these differences with the goal of increasing accurate diagnoses for pediatric anxiety disorders.  We will also explore specific protocols designed from a Cognitive Behavioral framework and how they can be applied to our younger clients suffering with anxiety related difficulties. Boundaries and roles among therapists, parents, school personnel, and the clients themselves will be addressed.
