Event Description

Anxiety is the most commonly diagnosed mental health problem in children and adolescents, affecting about 12% of school-going youngsters. Many anxious youth experience serious problems at home, in school, and with peers.

Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), the gold standard of treatment, has been shown to be effective in helping as many as 80 percent of these youngsters conquer anxiety. Unfortunately, many anxious youth do not receive CBT. If untreated, youngsters with anxiety are at higher risk for academic underachievement, substance use and school drop-out.

In this practical, strategy-filled workshop, internationally known anxiety expert Dr. Aureen Wagner presents the innovative and child-friendly Worry Hill® CBT approach for youth anxiety. Known for her clarity, compassion and engaging style, Dr. Wagner combines scientifically-proven strategies with clinical pearls to offer ready-to-use tools for clinical practices and schools.
