Research indicates that as many as 20% of school-aged youths could be diagnosed with anxiety disorders. If left untreated, childhood anxiety often exerts its influence across the lifespan. Dr. Eisen will provide information about the nature, assessment, and evidence-based treatment of anxiety and its disorders in children and adolescents. The presentation will emphasize education, intervention, and prevention. More importantly, an overview of cognitive-behavioral coping strategies that can be implemented with youth in a variety of settings will be provided.
