Anxiety disorders are at an all-time high in the wake of the global pandemic. For many of our clients with Separation Anxiety, OCD, school phobia, or any other anxiety driven need to control their environments, COVID-19 only helped to intensify their beliefs and problematic patterns of behavior. In addition, the big behaviors that children exhibit as they dig in for control over the things that make them anxious have been experienced within much more constrained family systems this year. Come join us in exploring tried and true therapeutic metaphors and tools as we provide more nuance to their application in this new normal. Clinicians will learn how to help children boss back the anxious thoughts, learn what their bodies are telling them in the midst of anxiety, equip parents as SOOTHING partners who do not collude with the anxiety, and employ playful ways to do the hard thing anyway.
