Treatment of Anxiety in Youth at the Transition to Adulthood

Join expert clinician, Dr. Anne Marie Albano, PhD, ABPP for Treatment of Anxiety in Youth at the Transition to Adulthood. This is an exciting online event dedicated to addressing the treatment of anxiety in youth. This event will be held on Thursday, June 6, 2024 at 9:00 AM EST.

Overview

Anxiety disorders are the most common class of mental health problems in youth, with onset in early childhood and increasing prevalence building through to emerging adulthood. Youth with anxiety disorders evidence significant distress, impairments in functioning, and are at high risk for the development of secondary conditions such as depression and substance use by adolescence.

Dr. Albano will present a novel model integrating the core components of effective CBT for anxiety in youth with novel family-based and developmental components designed to address patient-caretaker dependency, role transitions, and attainment of behaviors necessary for greater independent functioning within the contexts that are unique to the youth’s age and developmental stage. Exposure, the key treatment component for treating anxiety, is also enhanced through use of ecologically valid situations that are encountered by youth. Dr. Albano will present on ways to breathe life into exposures. A focus on this model for adolescents and emerging adults will be presented.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize the tasks of development necessary to master independence from adolescence through to young adulthood
  2. Understand the way that child anxiety can interact with and shape overprotective parenting, and the consequences on continued anxiety and stalled development
  3. Learn evidence-based models for parental involvement in youth-focused cognitive behavioral treatment to address anxiety
  4. Apply strategies for addressing parental over involvement and youth dependency including family communication and problem solving
