Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents: Changing the Family Dance
Lynn Lyons, L.I.C.S.W.
Anxiety can be a persistent master. When it moves into families, it takes over daily routines, schoolwork, and recreation. To make matters worse, the things adults (including many therapists and school staff) do to help anxious children often makes the anxiety stronger. Fortunately, research shows that what we teach children about risk, danger, uncertainty, and problem-solving impacts whether they go on to become anxious or depressed teens and adults. In this session, you’ll explore concrete, cognitive strategies that normalize worry for families, so you can help children, teens, and their families.
Bonus
Mindfulness for Children and Teens
Christopher Willard, Psy. D.
For many children or teens, therapy feels unhelpful at best, and stigmatizing at worst. But when we can effectively introduce mindfulness into our sessions, we empower kids to transform themselves, allowing them to identify and regulate their emotions and attention with fun and effective exercises. In this interactive module, you’ll discover ways to share engaging and immediately powerful mindfulness practices with kids who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, and more. Explore how to present mindfulness in creative ways to maximize engagement in and out of the clinical hour, and access specific strategies to tailor mindfulness to a child’s diagnosis and developmental stage.

OCD and Children: It’s a Family Affair
Lynn Lyons, L.I.C.S.W.
When obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) shows up in a child, it’s likely that other family members have it, too. OCD is the ultimate cult leader, demanding acceptance of a skewed view of reality and often ruling families for generations. This session demonstrates how to recognize OCD, the common pitfalls of treating OCD in kids, and active strategies to help children and families improve.

Who’s Afraid of Children in Family Therapy?: How Therapists Can Help
Dafna Lender, LCSW and Phyllis Booth, MA
Unlike teens, young children can’t readily talk about feelings, don’t sit in one place, and often can’t follow rules and directions, even when you’re playing a game. So how can you engage children in creative ways that are manageable, productive and time-efficient? This session will demonstrate how to apply the principles of Theraplay, a model based on affective neuroscience and attachment theory, to increase a sense of caring and trust between family members.

Children Who Bully: Strategies for Recognizing and Responding to Them
Signe Whitson, LSW, C-SSWS
Young people who bully often master the art of blending in with the crowd, flying under an adult’s radar and wreaking havoc in subtle ways. Many socially aggressive kids actually top an adult’s "good child" list and make their way into their victims' inner circle before revealing their true intentions. This session will provide information, activity ideas, and clear-cut strategies for what adults can do to understand and change relational bullying in schools, treatment programs, communities, and families.
Bonus
Working with Traumatized Adolescents: How to Get Unhooked
Martha Straus, Ph.D.
To work with troubled and traumatized adolescents, it’s crucial for therapists to foster the capacity for self-awareness and self-regulation. It’s not easy, especially when our young clients’ extreme reactions—ranging from angry arousal to frozen shutting down—can trigger a sense of helplessness, failure, dissociation, and rejection. In this session, you’ll discover how to get unhooked from this nonfunctional cycle to lead adolescent clients to happier and healthier lifestyles.

Sensory Processing and Autism: Understanding Sensory Processing and Sensory Strategies in Treatment
Tara Delaney, MS, OTR/L

But typically, even in therapy, there’s not enough attention paid to the role these difficulties play in the academic struggles, behavioral problems, and coordination challenges that these children experience. This session provides the latest findings on ways to address the fundamental roots of autistic clients' neurological challenges to you can better support them.
