Friday, September 20th, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM: Creative CBT Interventions for Children with Anxiety

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most empirically supported treatment for treating childhood anxiety. The effectiveness of this approach is enhanced by integrating creative, developmentally appropriate interventions so that children will engage in treatment. In this one-day workshop, a brief overview of CBT will be presented, along with innovative techniques to engage, assess, and treat children with anxiety. Interventions will address the core treatment components: Psychoeducation, somatic management, affective expression, cognitive restructuring, exposure, and relapse prevention. Although the focus of this workshop will be on treating children with anxiety, many of the interventions can be adapted for use with other treatment populations.

Learning Objectives:

1) Describe the special challenges of utilizing CBT with children.

2) Discuss the benefits of integrating playful approaches in CBT treatment with children.

3) Use at least two interventions to assess anxiety in children.

4) Describe methods for fostering treatment readiness in anxious children.

5) Implement at least five new interventions to treat anxiety in children.
