Anxious children, and often their parents, engage in predictable cognitive processes and coping strategies that create a cycle of avoidance, social isolation, and depression. This workshop will identify these common patterns, and focus on the development of interventions that help shift the anxious family toward flexibility, creativity, and the tolerance of uncertainty.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List three cognitive patterns of anxious children.
  2. Describe two possible homework assignments that promote the tolerance of uncertainty.
  3. Identify at least 3 “stumbling blocks” to treatment occasionally placed by parents.
