Anxious children often present challenges to the child therapist and to the child’s caretakers.  This webinar will help you understand how to recognize normal versus dysfunctional anxiety in children.  Understanding parent and guardian anxiety and its impact on children’s anxiety, conceptualizing the presenting problem, and providing specific techniques will all be discussed.

She has worked in many settings with a vast spectrum of clientele ranging across culture, socioeconomic status, age and background. She has lectured on anxiety and parenting in the past.
