Anxiety and Children: Implications for education

This event features six UBC graduate students speaking in a panel format on a variety of ways that anxiety in childhood and adolescence interferes with learning and overall quality of life. Each speaker will explore a unique facet of anxiety and will aim to present useful insights into assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders in children and adolescents. Available treatment programs and resources will be discussed and attendees will be given the opportunity to ask questions of each of the speakers. A number of the speakers will reference on-going research relevant to the topic, whereas others will present practical information, such as information on local treatment centers and available in-person programs as well as online resources. Attendees will gain a better understanding of anxiety disorders in general and will leave with knowledge of treatment options for children and adolescents with anxiety.
