About the Event
“Hand in Hand,” Understanding Anxiety Disorders in
Children and Adolescents: Empowering you and your child to successfully manage the
challenges of anxiety together “hand in hand.” Anxiety disorders are the most common
mental conditions in the general population, including in children and adolescents.
Young people can present with a pattern of anxiety symptoms somewhat different from
that typically seen in adults. One of the most common aspects of this difference is that
children (especially younger ones) may not report overt worries or fears, but instead
manifest pronounced physical symptoms. This presentation will provide an overview of
anxiety disorders in children/adolescents, specific types and symptoms of anxiety
disorders, most common treatments, and supportive tools and strategies you can use
to help your child manage their anxiety “hand in hand.
