The increasing rate of stress and trauma to children, which includes divorce, family breakdown, violence in society, the media, and "failing school system", has produced a “shell shocked” generation suffering from anxiety in many cases. The challenge for clinicians is to recognize anxiety in children and help them cope.

Dr. Paul Foxman will present a template for how and why anxiety develops in children and adolescents. He will present practical treatment strategies that can be applied immediately. The seven key anxiety disorders along with case examples to be addressed include:

Separation anxiety disorder
Panic disorder
Overanxious disorder
Obsessive-compulsive disorder
Social anxiety disorder
Phobias
Post-traumatic stress disorder

Other co-occurring disorders (e.g. behavior problems, medical conditions, depression, ADHD, learning disabilities, selective mutism) will also be discussed. Emphasis will be on creative interventions involving insight-oriented, cognitive-behavioral, biological, mindfulness, expressive arts and family systems approaches.

Objectives:
Apply the “Three Ingredients” template for understanding how, why and when anxiety develops in children
Recognize and modify the sources of stress in children and adolescents
Explain the anxiety management skills to use with young clients
