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.
