Description

We all want kids to be successful, safe, and secure, but such good intentions are having unintended consequences.

Three societal ingredients…. a hyper-academic mindset, preoccupation with safety, and a tech-obsessed society… are fueling childhood anxiety, leaving kids fearful, avoidant, and ill-equipped for adulthood.

Watch child psychologist Steve O’Brien, Psy.D., for 2 days filled with practical strategies as he presents a three-level treatment model for childhood anxiety using targeted, evidenced-based therapies to:

  • Connect with and “rewire” anxious children and families
  • Provide child-friendly instruction about anxiety and the brain
  • Promote self-expression and healthy coping in shut-down kids
  • Reduce debilitating social anxiety in adolescents
  • Treat technology-related worries, obsessions, and compulsions
  • Develop anxiety-free safety plans for distressed kids and parents

Don’t miss out on this cutting-edge program for equipping and empowering kids to not only cope with anxiety, but to thrive as they develop a growing sense of both competence and confidence!
