The NJALC Spring Symposium 2016 (Somerset, NJ)
Springing into the Next Fifty Years (4/8/16)
Anxiety Disorders in School-Aged Children
Presenter: Robert Zambrano, Psy.D.
Information on how to identify anxiety disorders (OCD, Social Anxiety, Panic disorder, Generalized Anxiety, etc.) in school-aged children will be presented. School-based accommodations that would be appropriate to help children deal with these disorders more effectively in school and at home (dealing with homework,extracurricular activities) will be reviewed. Most of the presentation,however, will review and discuss empirically supported psychotherapy for these issues – specifically, information about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
