ANXIETY IN CHILDREN/ADOLESCENTS
March 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Presenter: Amanda Heins, Psy.D., Adolescent Center for OCD and Anxiety, Rogers Memorial Hospital
In this presentation, we’ll explore different types of anxiety children/adolescents may experience, as well as how anxiety can manifest in different settings such as home and school. From there, we’ll discuss common pitfalls well-intending parents/school providers can fall into (also known as symptom accommodation) and effective strategies parents/school providers can use to support their child/student (including when to seek out professional support).
