Daniel Villiers, Ph.D., President, Founder

With anxiety disorders among the most common mental health conditions for children and adolescents in the United States today, Dan Villiers discusses how parents can identify the difference between stress, anxiety and anxiety disorders, what causes anxiety in children and when to seek therapeutic treatment.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore when the symptoms of anxiety require treatment. Summarize how treatment typically begins with the establishment of trust so the child can identify the source of their fears and anxiety.
  • Parents and family are an integral part of anxiety treatment. Discuss what families need to create safety and support for their children to accompany their therapy and how parents can serve as an anchor for the child.
