Divorce, family breakdown, violence in society and the media, has produced a “shell-shocked” generation of kids suffering from anxiety!

You will learn how to help parents (“bulldozers”, “helicopters” and “snowplows”) and schools to gain confidence, gratification and success in helping their most anxious kids.

To increase your effectiveness with the various manifestations of child anxiety, Dr. Foxman will address each of the following disorders with case examples and clinical vignettes:
• Separation Anxiety Disorder
• Panic Disorder
