Anxiety disorders are among the most frequently diagnosed class of disorders in adolescents. Anxiety can interfere with numerous areas of functioning among adolescents including peer and family relations, academic performance, and engagement in social activities. Fortunately, many highly effective, evidence-based interventions are available to practitioners working with this population. During this workshop, participants will learn how to identify symptoms of anxiety and how they manifest in an adolescent population with strong emphasis on developmental factors. Common activating events for adolescent anxiety will be reviewed and participants will learn how to tailor specific strategies based on Rational-Emotive and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (RE&CBT) effectively to treat anxiety in adolescents.
