Description

Given the increasing rates of child and adolescent anxiety and depression, it’s clear our current treatment paradigm isn’t working to proactively reach the young people who need help. It’s time we put an end to misinformed accommodations that only strengthen patterns of anxiety. Discover cutting-edge programs that get upstream of the problem, targeting parents and other important adults as key to mitigating and preventing childhood anxiety. Also, explore family systems approaches that teach both adults and children concrete skills to interrupt generational patterns of anxiety, depression, and emotional (mis)management. This recording will demonstrate how to:  

  • Apply parental coaching and collaboration as an integral component of intervention 
  • Identify family patterns that support generational anxiety and address them using skill-based interventions 
  • Challenge the most common “elimination strategies,” such as distraction and reassurance, that actually increase anxiety and impair functioning 
  • Use groups, psychoeducational classes, and school-based programs to reach more underserved families and youth
