The most frequent complaint I hear from parents about the treatment they receive for their child's anxiety? "No one told us what to DO!" Anxiety is often generational, and by the time a family arrives at your office, they have been in the grips of the cult leader called anxiety for years. Worse yet, many of the things they have been doing, although loving and supportive, are actually making the anxiety stronger. This workshop will describe how to give families immediate and active solutions from the first session, including the use of front loading to provide critical information and understanding, changing the family's relationship with anxiety, and creating active interventions that are often the opposite of what they've typically been doing.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Develop active assignments that correct the common cognitive traps that bolster both anxiety and depression.
  2. Explain the use of front loading in a first session with a family. 
  3. Identify avoidant and safety behaviors that strengthen anxiety in families.
