About the Course:
This course provides a careful overview of empirically supported therapies for anxiety in children and adolescents. The course reviews neurobiological, behavioral, cognitive, and parenting-related etiological factors in anxiety and provides examples of questions therapists can use to assess these factors. The relevant outcome research is summarized in a user-friendly fashion, and the course explains how this research can be integrated with assessment findings to individualize therapy for each client. There is step-by-step instruction in the main cognitive-behavioral techniques for treating anxiety, including psychoeducation, cognitive restructuring, testing predictions, self-correcting for personal biases and, especially, exposure. The course also explains how to use psychodynamically informed interventions to address the fantasy fears of young children—fears which are usually so distant from rational thinking processes that they cannot be addressed by cognitive work. There are case illustrations and numerous examples of good words to say in various clinical situations.
This course is based on chapter 13 of the book, Child and Adolescent Therapy: Science and Art, 2nd Edition created by Jeremy Shapiro in 2015.
