Anxiety disorders represent one of the most prevalent forms of psychopathology among children and this is dramatically on the rise given the current pandemic. As such, many children are referred to therapy to help them cope with anxiety symptoms. The most efficacious treatment for childhood anxiety in the research is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The effectiveness of this approach is enhanced by integrating playful, developmentally appropriate interventions so that children will engage in treatment and learn key skills to manage anxiety. Children who might otherwise be resistant in therapy are more likely to participate in playful activities designed to cover the CBT components.
In this six-hour webinar, a brief overview of CBT will be presented, along with innovative play therapy techniques to assess and treat children with anxiety. Interventions will address the core treatment components: psychoeducation, somatic management, affective expression, cognitive restructuring, exposure, and relapse prevention. Therapeutic games, art, stories, and other engaging activities will be presented for use with children aged 4 -12.
The clinical focus of this workshop is on treating children with anxiety, but many of the interventions can be adapted for use with other treatment populations. Participants will come away with many new and innovative play therapy interventions that they can use immediately in their clinical practice, including online sessions. Join us for this empowering and refreshing utilization of play therapy CBT to enhance the lives of children.
Participants will be able to:
· Describe the special challenges of utilizing CBT with children
· Express the benefits of integrating play therapy interventions in CBT with children
· Apply at least two play therapy interventions to assess anxiety in children
· Describe methods for fostering treatment readiness in anxious children
· Implement at least 5 new play-based interventions to treat anxiety in children
· List the steps for implementing an exposure plan to help children manage anxiety
