Activating the Environment: Practical tips For Caregivers to Enhance Care Coordination for Effective Treatment of Childhood Anxiety and OCD

Presented in collaboration with InStride Health

In order to effectively treat children and adolescents with anxiety and OCD, it is essential to work with the communities that surround them. For many, this includes their treatment team, caregivers and families, school personnel, pediatricians, and other outside providers. Through close communication and effective care coordination, we can ensure that all adults in a child’s life are giving consistent messaging and reinforcing skillful ways of responding to anxiety and OCD. 

In this recorded webinar, the InStride Health team discusses the importance of taking a systems-based approach to care, identify common challenges, and offers practical solutions. They also provide recommendations for how caregivers can facilitate “surround sound” for their child when working with the various adults in their child’s system.
