Live webinar: May 17, 2022 | 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST
Liana Lowenstein, MSW, RSW, CPT-S
Anxiety disorders represent one of the most prevalent forms of psychopathology among children. The pandemic has dramatically given rise even further to this. 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 behavioral therapy (CBT). Integrating playful, developmentally appropriate interventions, enhances the effectiveness of this approach. Children will engage more in treatment and learn key skills to manage anxiety through this approach. Children who might otherwise be resistant in therapy are more likely to participate in playful activities designed to cover the CBT components.
This webinar will present a brief overview of 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. Liana Lowenstein will present therapeutic games, art, stories, and other engaging activities for use with children aged 4 to 12. Participants will come away with many new and innovative interventions that they can use immediately in their clinical practice, including online sessions.
Registration includes a copy of Liana Lowenstein’s book Creative CBT Interventions for Children with Anxiety.
Registration fee: $270. Student and group rates are available
