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.
This series will answer the questions I hear most often, including:
- 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 get parents, schools, and outside providers to work together more effectively?
- How can we create more effective accommodations, 504’s, and behavioral plans for anxious children and teens?
- What is the connection between anxiety and depression?
Participants will learn to interrupt the most common anxiety and depression enhancing patterns–including reassurance, accommodation, avoidance, and three cognitive habits—and adopt instead a process-based “umbrella approach” that changes both the child and adults’ engrained patterns of thinking and behaving.
