Event Description

In 2015, a survey by the Canadian Mental Health Association found that 46% of girls and 26% of boys in grades 7 to 12 reported symptoms of anxiety and depression. Clinicians are experiencing a rise in children, youth and their families struggling to cope with debilitating symptoms that are affecting their day-to-day lives. There is a growing need for therapists to expand their understanding as to the complexity of potential influences, as well as develop effective interventions, for anxiety and depression across childhood to adolescence. In addition, therapists are increasingly being called upon to work collaboratively with the communities such as schools and extra-curricular organizations to assist in better serving struggling young people.

This workshop can be used towards the Child and Youth Mental Health certificate.
