Statistics show that anxiety disorders among young people are growing and what is deeply concerning is that, for some, they will not get a correct diagnosis or treatment until they reach adulthood.

You can change that outcome and help these kids and their families.

During Anxiety and OCD in Kids and Teens, you will learn from McLean Hospital and Harvard Medical School experts about how best to support the young people and their families who come to you for help with anxiety.

In this course, we will delve into the realities of these conditions in children and teenagers, explore the crucial role that adults play in supporting young individuals, examine effective methods of recognizing and diagnosing various conditions affecting this population, and finally, discuss what effective, modern treatment looks like for those who require it.
