Anxiety disorders are the most common psychiatric disorders of childhood and adolescence. Many more children experience transient states of anxiety that will impact their ability to function at their best in the classroom and other domains of their daily lives.  This parent/ educator workshop will provide an in-depth review of the most common anxiety symptoms expressed by children and will detail specific examples of evidence-based interventions that parents can use to help children put their worry in perspective and engage in brave behaviors.
