Emotion Regulation Difficulties in Children and Adolescents: What the Heck Do I Do About It?

Wednesday, September 16, 2015 9:09 am

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.

The presenters describe this overarching clinical target and discuss useful clinical behavioral and medication strategies, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of CBT, DBT, and ACT approaches. They demonstrate how to coach parents to help their children learn these skills and limit the maintenance of problematic behaviors.

Continuing Education credits are not available for this archived webinar.
