Description

Children are susceptible to all the anxiety disorders seen in adults. The increasing rate of traumas to children has produced a ìshell-shockedî and anxious generation.

This workshop presents a model for how and why anxiety develops in children and adolescents, and provides practical assessment and treatment strategies that can be applied immediately by healthcare professionals in various settings.

Dr. Foxman will use case examples to address 7 key anxiety disorders: separation anxiety disorder, panic disorder, overanxious disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder, phobias, and posttraumatic stress disorder. He will emphasize creative psychotherapeutic interventions involving insightoriented, cognitive-behavioral, biological, mindfulness, and family systems approaches.
