About the Workshop

Anxiety disorders affect up to 10% of the population and are the most common mental health concern in children and adolescents. Cognitive-behavioral treatment, involving exposure to feared situations, is the front-line therapy approach for youth with anxiety disorders. Anthony Puliafico (bio), Ph.D., an associate professor of medical psychology in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Columbia University, specializes in the assessment and cognitive-behavioral treatment of anxiety, OCD and related disorders in children, anxiety and adults. At this workshop, he will describe exposure-based treatment and discuss its application to treat the range of anxiety disorders. Participants will learn to better provide skills and psychoeducation to youth and families, apply cognitive-behaviorial management strategies and exposure-based approaches to youth with anxiety disorders.
