Discover a transformative approach to addressing anxiety in children and teenagers with Dr. Aureen Wagner, a highly regarded expert in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Anxiety is a prevalent issue with our youth and can lead to significant social, behavioural, and learning challenges. With CBT, a proven and evidence-based treatment, up to 80% of young individuals can successfully gain control over their anxiety.

Known for her clarity and compassion, Dr. Wagner provides a comprehensive overview of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy theory, laying the groundwork for effective treatment. Dive into practical CBT techniques, including realistic thinking and exposure, and explore how they can be applied to address separation, generalized and social anxiety, school refusal, phobias, and panic in clinical and school settings.

Benefit from Dr. Wagner’s wealth of experience gathered over 25 years as she combines highly effective CBT strategies with invaluable clinical pearls. Learn the importance of treatment readiness, discover the four steps to cultivate it, and explore the five steps that empower children and teens to cool down their Feeling Temperature.

Dr. Wagner also emphasizes the collaborative role of parents in the therapeutic process, providing insights on raising brave children and teens overcoming the anxiety and difficulties that brought them into treatment. Real-life case examples enrich this learning experience, offering nuanced perspectives and enhancing your skills in effectively working with anxious youth and their parents.
