Helping children and teens with executive function challenges: Interventions for emotional regulation and organizational skills (CE 3)

Joyce Cooper-Kahn, Ph.D.

Please Plan to Arrive by 8:30am

We will start promptly at 8:45am

Intermediate Level (CE 3) (Mental health clinicians and educators with a working knowledge of executive functioning)

This CE class is offered via live webinar as well as in-person. Please select the ticket type that you prefer.


This workshop will focus on practical strategies for intervention for children and teens who struggle to manage demands related to hot and/or cool executive functions—the processes and skills that underpin emotional regulation and organizational skills. The thrust of the workshop will be understanding what works and developing individualized treatment plans. We will discuss general principles for intervention and specific strategies to improve our clients’ ability to manage life demands. While we will address emotional dysregulation and cognitive inflexibility, the workshop will be more heavily weighted toward interventions for disorganization.

We will consider the evidence base for interventions, and examples of manualized treatments with research-based support will be offered. We will also briefly address brain-based treatment strategies that hold promise for the future but are still under study.

Participants are encouraged to come prepared with a child or teen in mind, and we will practice creating concrete plans to address the problems with executive functioning that interfere with children’s and teens’ abilities to be successful at home and at school

Learning Objectives

1.List important features of the process of intervention for children and teens with EF challenges.

2. List at least 2 examples of well researched, manualized intervention programs for EF challenges.

3. Create a sample treatment plan for helping children and teens who struggle with emotional regulation.

4. Create a sample treatment plan for helping children and teens who are disorganized.
