About this Event

Cognitive Behavioral Treatment of Childhood Anxiety Disorders (CE 3)

Bonnie Zucker, PsyD

Please plan to login by 8:40 AM to check-in. We will start promptly at 8:45 AM

INTRODUCTORY & INTERMEDIATE LEVEL: Target audience: clinicians and mental health professionals.

Anxiety disorders are the most common form of psychopathology in children and adolescents. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most empirically supported approach to treating anxiety disorders. CBT views anxiety as manifesting in three ways: physiologically (body), cognitively (thoughts), and behaviorally (actions).

This workshop will review the three parts of anxiety and provide strategies and techniques used to treat each component. Participants will learn how to teach lower diaphragmatic breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, how to challenge cognitive distortions, create worry loop recordings, and create ladders to help the client systematically face fears. Case examples will be provided to enhance learning of the approach.

  1. Describe the three components of anxiety, as they manifest in children.
  2. List 3 cognitive distortions and define them.
  3. Explain how to create loop and uncertainty training recordings.
  4. Create a ladder to support the client with exposure to feared situations.
