Description

An anxiety disorder can affect people of all ages, including children. In fact, anxiety disorders are the most common type of mental health disorder in children, affecting as many as ten percent of young people.

All children experience some anxiety; this is normal and expected. For example, when left alone at preschool for the first time, many children will show distress; a young child in his or her own room may develop a fear of the dark. Such anxiety becomes a problem when it interrupts a child's normal activities, like attending school and making friends or sleeping. Persistent and intense anxiety that disrupts daily routine is a mental health problem that requires intervention.

Common anxiety disorders include Separation Anxiety Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Phobia. The purpose of this workshop is to help clinicians: 1) identify and accurately diagnose children with anxiety disorders; 2) understand the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); 3) learn how to implement CBT effectively with children with anxiety; and 4) understand how families are involved in the treatment process.
