This training is for school social workers and others interested in helping children overcome anxiety. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States affecting up to 25% of children. Severe anxiety in emerging adults, ages 18-24, has become the new mental health crisis. Utilizing evidenced based treatment including cognitive behavior therapy with exposure and response prevention as well as mindfulness, this workshop will provide you with a clear understanding of what you may be doing that perpetuates anxiety, simple ways to help children take charge and win the anxiety game, as well as skills you can take back to your work and use immediately to help children who suffer with anxiety. This presentation includes cases examples, videos, and interactive practice to aid with skill acquisition. Featuring Kimberly Joy Morrow, LCSW co-sponsored by the New York State School Social Workers’ Association, the Mental Health Advocates of Western New York & the Parent Network of Western New York.
