Occupational therapy approaches to anxiety with children and teens

Register online by August 28, 2018 - 09/04/2018

Presenter: Sean Boulet

This webinar will cover the presenter’s experiences and evidence-informed approaches to working with children and teens with anxiety. The strengths and challenges of anxiety will be overviewed. The application of standard anxiety treatments when working with children and adolescents (with a focus on exposure-based cognitive-behavioural therapy), and complementary ways that occupational therapists can offer enhanced anxiety management approaches (e.g., sensory-motor self-regulation strategies and other self-regulation approaches). The webinar also asks a fundamental question – “Doesn’t all therapy involve a certain amount of exposure to our fears? Doesn’t a meaningful life?” The presenter will share his significant clinical experience in this area of practice.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

  1. Describe how to apply exposure-based cognitive behavioural therapy with children and teens with anxiety.
  2. Understand how occupational therapists can uniquely complement and enhance anxiety management.
  3. Appreciate how anxiety and exposure are a part of all therapeutic interventions.
