Program Narrative:
Anxiety can often present itself very differently in children and adolescents relative to adult struggles with anxiety. Understanding these differences as well as how anxiety in youngsters may manifest itself as other difficulties (school avoidance, hostility and anger, crying, etc.) is a necessary prerequisite for effective treatment. This presentation will review these differences with the goal of increasing accurate diagnoses for pediatric anxiety disorders.  We will also explore specific protocols designed from a Cognitive Behavioral framework and how they can be applied to our younger clients suffering with anxiety related difficulties. Boundaries and roles among therapists, parents, school personnel, and the clients themselves will be addressed. 

Learning Objectives:
To become more versed in the application of CBT treatment protocols for differing presentations and difficulties related to pediatric anxiety:
 1). Participants will be able to describe different anxiety presentations in children and adolescents
2).  Participants will be better able to apply the different components of CBT in its relationship to pediatric anxiety, with special emphasis on relaxation, cognitive restructuring, and exposure therapy
 3). Participants will be able to select and differentiate between behavioral vs cognitive interventions and between relaxation and exposure models of treatment

Target Audience: Psychologists
