After decades of working with anxious children and teens, I have two unshakable truths: families MUST be involved in treatment and anxious patterns are shifted through experiential learning. Working with the FOUR critical concepts to manage anxiety in families and the SIX patterns that must be interrupted, this workshop will describe HOW to create active, engaging assignments for families to do between sessions and describe the TEN favorites that I return to again and again.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the four critical concepts of anxiety treatment in families.
  2. Create at least 3 assignments for families that support the critical concepts through experiential learning. 
  3. Utilize homework assignments in a first session with anxious families to create momentum and positive expectancy.
