The Nuts and Bolts of Adolescent Anxiety
Explore a model to conceptualize adolescent anxiety that considers developmental aspects of adolescence and psychopathological perspectives of anxiety. Part 3 of the series will focus on adolescent anxiety including:
- Generalized anxiety
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
- Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
Practical therapeutic approaches to treating adolescent anxiety that emphasize the development of self-regulation skills and anxiety management strategies will also be provided.
At any given time up to 20% of children and adolescents meet diagnostic criteria for a psychological condition. This accounts for the majority of mental health referrals in primary care. Countless studies have pointed to a need to improve adolescent mental health programming. Earning your Adolescent Mental Health Certificate will provide you with practical approaches when working with adolescents experiencing mental health problems.
