Workshop Description:

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) is the Gold Standard for treating anxiety and OCD spectrum disorders. Even individuals who experience high levels of Generalized Anxiety Disorder can benefit from ERP. Doing ERP with children and adolescents can be challenging because you are not only working with the child but their parents as well. There are more factors to consider when using ERP with children and adolescents because they do not have a fully developed prefrontal cortex, and their parents may be unknowingly feeding into the client’s anxiety. This workshop is aimed to help participants learn effective techniques and interventions to use for children and adolescents with high amounts of anxiety and OCD. Dr. Ashlenn Von Wiegand will also educate participants on the importance of parental involvement in the ERP process and how to encourage parent collaboration in home-based exposure activities. The presenter will also provide various creative and fun exposure activities to keep kids engaged. Finally, participants will learn ERP tailored skills developed by Dr. Von Wiegand to help the young mind learn to accept anxiety’s presence and face anxiety with courage and strength. Overall, participants will have a better understanding of how to use ERP with children and adolescents and they will be ready to apply these techniques immediately.
