Cognitive-Behavioural Treatment for Anxiety in Youth: Practical Evidence-Based Strategies

Philip C. Kendall, ABPP
presented by Ryerson Psychology

Workshop Overview

This workshop will provide an initial description of the theory that guides treatment of anxiety in youth as well as an overview of the nature, symptoms, and experience of anxiety in this population. We will consider when anxiety is developmentally reasonable and when it is disordered, and we will consider features of anxiety as they relate to and are expressed by children as well as adolescents. Cognitive, behavioural, family (parenting), and emotional factors will be addressed. The bulk of the workshop will be on cognitivebehavioural strategies for anxiety in youth. Each of the strategies (e.g., coping modeling, changing self-talk, affect education, exposure tasks/behavioral experiments) will be described in detail and illustrated with (a) case examples (b) samples from the childparticipant's workbook and (c) descriptions in the therapist's treatment manuals. A flexible implementation of the manual-based approach will be described and encouraged. Sample videos of actual sessions and re-enacted sessions will be available to be played and discussed, and small groups of workshop participants will have an opportunity to engage in role-play activities. Research outcomes that inform decisions regarding the provision of clinical services for anxious youth will be considered, highlighting both (a) what we
know and (b) what we do not yet know about the treatment of anxiety disorders in youth. There will be a preview of samples from (a) an online parent training program (i.e., ChildAnxietyTales) and (b) a computer-assisted CBT treatment program for children (i.e., Camp Cope-A-Lot).


• Learn to improve the identification of anxiety disorders in youth
• Learn to better understand the nature of anxiety disorders in youth, including developmental, cognitive, and familial forces
• Acquire skills in the application of treatment strategies (e.g., psychoeducation, exposure tasks, behavioural experiments) for the treatment of anxiety in youth
• Gain a basic understanding of the cognitivebehavioural treatment of anxiety disorders in youth, including an illustrative program called the Coping Cat


• Developmentally informed presentation of cognitive, emotional, and behavioural features of anxiety
• Key components of effective intervention to reduce anxiety
• Opportunities to watch sample sessions and role-play selected treatment strategies
• Learn how effective treatment for anxiety is about less talking and more action
