Creative Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Interventions for Children with Anxiety: Innovative Techniques to Assess and Treat Children with Anxiety

Facilitator: Liana Lowenstein, MSW, RSW, CPT-S
presented by SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health Learning Institute

Description: Best-selling author and one of Canada's foremost presenters on childhood trauma, Liana Lowenstein will present an overview of CBT, along with innovative techniques to assess and treat children with anxiety. Participants will learn interventions that will address the core treatment components: psychoeducation, somatic management, affective expression, cognitive restructuring, exposure, and relapse prevention. Through case examples, activity demonstrations, experiential exercises, and videos of actual client sessions, this one-day workshop will combine theoretical material with hands-on therapeutic interventions that can be easily translated into practice.

Anxiety disorders represent one of the most prevalent forms of psychopathology among children. As such, many children are referred to therapy to help them cope with anxiety symptoms. The most efficacious treatment for childhood anxiety in the research is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The effectiveness of this approach is enhanced by integrating playful, developmentally appropriate interventions so that children will engage in treatment and learn key skills to manage anxiety. Children who might otherwise be resistant in therapy are more likely to participate in playful activities designed to cover the CBT components.

In this one-day workshop, a brief overview of CBT will be presented, along with innovative techniques to assess and treat children with anxiety. Interventions will address the core treatment components: psychoeducation, somatic management, affective expression, cognitive restructuring, exposure, and relapse prevention. Therapeutic games, art, stories, and other engaging activities will be presented for use with children aged 4 - 12.

Through case examples, activity demonstrations, experiential exercises, and videos of actual client sessions, this one-day workshop will combine theoretical material with hands-on therapeutic interventions.

Although the focus of this workshop will be on treating children with anxiety, many of the interventions can be adapted for use with other treatment populations.

Learning Objectives:

• Describe the special challenges of utilizing CBT with children
• Discuss the benefits of integrating playful approaches in CBT treatment with children
• Use at least two interventions to assess anxiety in children
• Describe methods for fostering treatment readiness in anxious children
• Implement at least five new interventions to treat anxiety in children
