The prevalence of anxiety disorders among young people is growing, and it is disheartening to see many of them struggle well into their adult years without receiving the necessary care.
The significant rise of anxiety among youth can be attributed to various factors, such as the impact of challenging socioeconomic conditions on families and the ongoing effects of COVID-19.
Unfortunately, due to a lack of understanding, misdiagnosis, or the perception that “kids will be kids,” many children and adolescents display symptoms that go unrecognized.
The great news is that everyone has the power to contribute to the solution. Parents, educators, coaches, and health care professionals all have equally important roles in helping young people conquer anxiety, OCD, and related disorders.
In this course, you will learn from McLean Hospital and Harvard Medical School experts about how best to support young people and their families.
We will delve into the realities of these conditions in children and teenagers, explore the crucial role that adults play in supporting young individuals, examine effective methods of recognizing and diagnosing various conditions affecting this population, and finally, discuss what effective, modern treatment looks like for those who require it.
This course is free to all attendees. Continuing education credits are available for a small fee.
Offered by the Education Outreach Department at McLean Hospital
