Thursday, November 5, 2009, Phillip Kendall, Ph.D., Professor, Author, and Director of the Child and Adolescent Anxiety Disorders Clinic at Temple University will provide an overview of the nature, symptoms and experience of anxiety in youth. He will address specific treatment intervention strategies that comprise Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. His presentation will include a discussion considering when anxiety is developmentally reasonable and when it is disordered. Treatment strategies will be described and illustrated with case examples. Research outcomes will also be presented to illustrate what we know and what we still need to learn about anxiety in this population.
I am looking forward to this workshop. “Facilitative” anxiety, as apprpropriate for the developmental level of the child and adolescent is a question that I frequently encounter in my Practice. I’m especially hoping that Dr. Kendall is able to match the treatment with the symptoms for each age group.
Please share your thoughts on this and other questions about Dr. Kendall’s Workshop.
