Playful CBT Interventions for Children with Anxiety
 
Presenter: Liana Lowenstein, MSW, RSW, CPT-S
6 CE Hours/Clock Hours/ Contact Hours

Description:

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most empirically supported treatment for treating childhood anxiety. The effectiveness of this approach is enhanced by integrating creative, developmentally appropriate interventions so that children will engage in treatment. In this one-day workshop, a brief overview of CBT will be presented, along with innovative play therapy techniques to engage, assess, and treat children with anxiety. Interventions will address the core treatment components: Psychoeducation, somatic management, affective expression, cognitive restructuring, exposure, and relapse prevention. Although the focus of this workshop will be on treating children with anxiety, many of the interventions can be adapted for use with other treatment populations.

This workshop is designed for:

Social workers (LCSW, LMSW, LISW, BSW, AAW), psychologists (Ph.D., Psy.D., Ed.D.) school counselors, school psychologist, professional counselors (LMHC, LCMHC, CMHC, LPC, LCPC), marriage and family therapists (LMFT, LIMFT) art therapists, play therapists, occupational therapists, graduate students, and others in the mental health-related field.  

Learning Objectives:

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to…

  1. Articulate the types of anxiety disorders. 
  2. Differentiate normal versus problem anxiety.
  3. Describe the core components of evidence-based CBT for treating anxious children.
  4. Discuss the benefits of integrating play therapy with CBT to treat anxious children.
  5. Implement at least five new play therapy interventions in sessions with anxious children and their families.
