Addressing Perfectionism Across Anxiety Disorders in Children and Adolescents: Learning to Live by Values Instead of by Rules (Recorded May 23, 2017)
Presented by Lynne Siqueland, PhD
The goal of CBT with perfectionistic youth is to reduce reliance on “have tos” and rules, in favor of living a life guided by values and meaning. Dr. Siqueland reviews cognitive interventions including weighing the costs and benefits of maintaining the status quo versus adopting more relaxed standards; exploring feared consequences of lowering standards; and examining reluctance to enjoy leisure time. She also discusses how to use exposures to challenge beliefs associated with lowering standards and possible differences across the anxiety disorders. Importantly, Dr. Siqueland outlines how it can involve schools and family members in treatment.
Clinical Kung Fu: Managing Anger in Children and Teens with Anxiety Disorders (Recorded July 20, 2017)
Presented by Alison Alden, PhD and Dr. Julianne Pojas, PsyD
Children and adolescents with anxiety disorders often act out or react with anger to treatment. In particular, the prospect of doing exposure and resisting compulsions or safety behaviors can engender not only fear but also anger, resistance, and defiance. It can be difficult for clinicians and families to manage, and can lead to both treatment dropout and conflict at home. This webinar presents practical strategies that clinicians can use to deal with children’s anger, and suggestions for how to present these strategies to parents.
Emotional Regulation Difficulties in Children and Adolescents: What the Heck Do I Do About It? (Recorded September 16, 2015)
Presented by Lynne Siqueland, PhD, and Stephanie Eken, MD
This webinar addresses how to help children and teens whose core difficulty appears to be emotion regulation difficulties with or without a primary anxiety or depression diagnosis. These individuals frequently demonstrate problems of rigidity, reactivity, low-frustration tolerance, and difficulty tolerating distress (both emotional and physical), creating problems for themselves and their families.
