Creative Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) interventions for children with anxiety

Liana Lowenstein, MSW, RSW, CPT-S
presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

Anxiety disorders among children are dramatically on the rise given the current pandemic. As such, many children are referred to therapy to help them cope with anxiety symptoms. This webinar will provide a brief overview of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), 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.

This training is suitable for:

Mental Health Professionals: Psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists, social workers

Level of training: Intermediate

Client age category: This training is for mental health professionals who provide therapy to children aged 4 to 12.

COVID-19 related content: There will be discussion on how children have heightened anxiety due to the pandemic.

Description: Anxiety disorders represent one of the most prevalent forms of psychopathology among children and this is dramatically on the rise given the current pandemic. 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 Behavioural 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 six-hour webinar, 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.

Although the focus of this webinar is on treating children with anxiety, many of the interventions can be adapted for use with other treatment populations. Participants will come away with many new and innovative interventions that they can use immediately in their clinical practice, including online sessions.

Learning objectives:

• Describe the special challenges of utilizing CBT with children
• Discuss the benefits of integrating playful interventions in CBT 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
