Workshop Overview: 
Dr. Albano will review the limitations of outcomes inherent in clinical trials examining treatments for youth with anxiety disorders, and call attention to the need to incorporate developmental goals into case conceptualizations and treatment plans. A model for treatment delivery that addresses parent-child interaction, across all levels of development through to adulthood, will be presented and explained with case descriptions.

Learning Assessment Outcomes

  1. To recognize the role of development and its interaction with anxiety disorders in creating greater functional impairment than symptom severity.
  2. The need to examine parent-youth interaction in the maintenance of anxiety and related conditions, and to incorporate this relationship into treatment goals and planning.
  3. To apply a model of CBT focused on symptom reduction and improving functional outcomes within a developmental frame.
