Helping Anxious Families: Active Tips That Work and Common Traps to Avoid



Anxiety and OCD will show up, and after the past year, anxious cracks have become chasms for many anxious families.  

It’s common for clinicians to get caught up in content (what kids worry about) instead of focusing on the how and why of anxiety --all the more detrimental with a missed OCD issue!   

In this recording, Lynn will show you how (and why!) to sidestep this content trap and move away from all-too-common elimination strategies.
