Attend More and Save! | Mix & Match to Create a Customized Virtual Conference Experience

Presented by Margaret Wehrenberg, Psy.D.

The Virtual Canadian School-Focused Mental Health Conference | Airing November 18, 2020


3 Hours  |  Pending CEU Approval


You are never too young to be anxious and how we wish that were not true! Children and adolescents do not always display anxiety the way adults do. They may appear oppositional or always report stomach or headaches, but the interventions that help with anxiety will help resolve those issues. The 10 proven and effective techniques to reduce anxiety will help mental health clinicians, teachers, parents, school personnel to intervene in the moment when children are most anxious and offer them relief from panic and worry. When children have social anxiety challenges they will benefit from the process of memory reconsolidation – a way to re-enter situations that have been frightening with calm and confidence that changes the memories of negative experiences at their core. Dr. Margaret Wehrenberg will demonstrate this method and others through case examples and discussion, and we will take a look at correcting some of the ways the COVID-19 crisis has affected anxiety in our youth.
