In the Trenches: Family Impact and Parenting Strategies for Anxiety and OCD
Time & Location
About the Speaker Event
One of the nation's leading interventionists, Dr. Dan Villiers has educated, motivated, and inspired more than 700 families to pursue treatment for their children with acute anxiety, OCD and trauma. At the forefront of developing specialized anxiety treatment programs for school-aged children, Dr. Villiers co-founded the Anxiety Institute, a Greenwich-based organization offering an Intensive Day Program for anxious adolescents and young adults, and Mountain Valley Treatment Center, the first non-hospital residential anxiety program in the United States. "Having struggled with debilitating social anxiety and panic disorder throughout high school and college," said Dr. Villiers, "my life has been dedicated to raising awareness about the wide-spread impact of anxiety, reducing the shame of those suffering from anxiety disorders, and eliciting commitment for treatment."
In this workshop, we'll discuss what it's like to have anxiety, how anxiety can look different across child, adolescent, and young adult development, and the treatment and family interventions that have proven effective. Find help, hope, and inspiration for facing the anxiety epidemic head-on.
