Webinar: Recognizing and managing teen anxiety

This webinar is for parents, guardians, youth workers, and caring adults interested in teen mental health.  Nearly one in three adolescents meet the criteria for an anxiety disorder by the age of 18. Sadly, 80% of youth diagnosed with anxiety are not getting the treatment they need. Caring adults can make a difference by learning to recognize the signs and intervening before anxiety takes over a teen’s life or leads to depression.  

In this webinar, Lisa M. Schab, LCSW, a practicing psychotherapist and international best-selling author, will discuss the symptoms of an anxiety disorder, anxiety management skills adults can practice with youth, and ways adults can encourage teens to be a part of choosing treatment options.

Date and Time: 
September 25, 2019 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm
