Description

Are you a practitioner looking to become more familiar with identifying the signs and symptoms of anxiety and trauma related disorders in children and adults? Information on the basic epidemiology of anxiety and trauma related disorders will be presented. We will review the basic diagnostic criteria for the most prevalent anxiety and trauma related disorders for both children and adults. We will discuss common comorbidities as well as differential diagnosis of both classes of psychiatric illness. Finally, we will review common evidence-based interventions for both children and adults.

Content will be delivered using a combination of engaged audience discussion, PowerPoint presentation, short videos, case-studies, and group work. The focus of this work will be on identifying and differentiating between the different anxiety and trauma related disorders. While we will review common evidence-based treatments, we will not go in-depth into any one treatment.
